DaVinci Creativity in Education Fellows
2019 Application Information
Call for Research
As a new category within DaVinci Fellowships, The DaVinci Institute is offering $1000 fellowships to promote scholarship in any area of creativity in education. Faculty at both two- and four-year institutions that are members of the DaVinci Institute are eligible to apply for these fellowships and may apply as individuals or collaborative groups. Collaborative projects will be eligible for a single award. There is no institutional limit for the number of Creativity in Education Fellowship proposals that can be submitted. Each submission MUST have institutional approval to be considered complete in the form of the following: signature of faculty member’s immediate supervisor (Department Chair, Dean, etc.) AND the signature of a representative of The Office of The Provost or Academic Vice President.
DaVinci seeks to encourage increased understanding about the efficacy of various approaches to developing human creativity. Researchers are encouraged to submit proposals that answer questions such as: How do you develop the aptitude to be creative? How do you know when it works? What assessment tools could be used to measure creativity? These projects may apply to a wide variety of educational settings, including K-12, higher education, corporate training, and community development.
Fellowship selectees will receive a DaVinci “Vitruvian Man” medal and a $1000 grant to apply to any aspect of completing the proposed project.
DaVinci Fellows will be asked to provide a brief presentation about the completed project to the board of directors approximately one year after receiving funding. The board reserves the right to determine the time, date, and location of this presentation in consultation with each Fellow.
There is no institutional limit for the number of Creativity in Education Fellowship proposals that can be submitted.
The deadline for applications is January 15, 2019
