Process & Next Steps
Faculty members interested in receiving working group support are encouraged to submit an initial application using the link below. IHDSC staff will review your application and contact you to schedule a meeting. The meeting will serve as an opportunity for IHDSC to provide feedback on your idea, connect you with potential working group members from other departments or disciplines, discuss potential products or goals, and identify any resources that the working group might require (staff support, space, funds). In most cases, applicants will be required to submit a revised application before a final determination can be made regarding support.
If you have questions about the working group program, please contact Chris Barker at email@example.com
Submit a Working Group Proposal
As long as the above requirements are met, groups can include members from the wider IHDSC or NYU community, including faculty, research staff, or graduate students. Groups should be small enough to be productive, large enough to need support, and diverse enough to break new ground.Submit Application
