As co-chairs of the CWPA Research Grants Committee, Chuck Paine and Diane Kelly-Riley are pleased to share this CFP for the 2015 CWPA Research Grants.
The Research Grants Committee invites proposals that investigate issues and practices in writing program administration. Funding is available for smaller award projects investigating the wide variety of issues related to writing program direction in its various forms.
Likewise, we have larger awards available for targeted research projects that conduct what Richard Haswell has called “RAD inquiry”: research that is “replicable, aggregable, and data supported.” RAD scholarship, as defined by Haswell “is a best effort inquiry into the actualities of a situation, inquiry that is explicitly enough systematicized in sampling, execution, and analysis to be replicated; exactly enough circumscribed to be extended; and factually enough supported to be verified” (201).
Specifically, for Targeted Funding we seek research RAD‐inquiry proposals that conduct
● multiple‐site/institution research, and/or
● investigations into the connections between secondary and post‐secondary writing instruction, student success, and/or policy.
Proposals are due by Friday, May 29, 2015, and the recipients will be announced at the 2015 CWPA Conference in Boise, Idaho in July.
