Loogman Grant Application Deadline Approaching

The Center for African Studies is accepting applications through Friday, March 12, from full-time faculty in all academic disciplines for the Rev. Alphons Loogman, C.S.Sp., Faculty Research Grants.

Center for African Studies call for Loogman Grants. Duquesne University is now accepting proposals for Rev. Alphons Loogman's C.C.Sp. Faculty Research GrantsDuquesne was founded to advocate and advance opportunity for immigrants, and today, members of the University community continue to stand up for the health and economic well-being of people and populations on the margins. Proposals for the Loogman grants should involve research and scholarship that mirrors Duquesne’s work in forming a closer relationship with the nations and people of Africa. Research projects in global health related to Africa and its diaspora also are eligible.

Two $6,500 Loogman grant recipients will be announced Friday, April 9. Awardees may use the funding to support a portion of a multiphase research project provided that portion is clearly defined and the application makes a strong case for the likelihood of future external funding and/or publication.

Because Duquesne faculty teach a curriculum that encourages thinking across disciplinary perspectives, applicants are encouraged to consider collaborative and cross-disciplinary research projects, and previous Loogman Grant recipients are welcome to apply.

Applicants can email the center at africanstudies@duq.edu to determine whether their research meets the Loogman grant objectives.

Important information such as details regarding eligibility and application requirements as well as a list of previous grant recipients and their projects are available on the Loogman Grant webpage.
