Paluse Grants Supporting Duquesne's Mission
PALUSE GRANTS AND THE MISSION OF DUQUESNE UNIVERSITY
Paluse Faculty Research Grants are intended to support research and scholarship which reflect Duquesne's mission and engage resources in the Catholic intellectual tradition. All inquiry in search of the truth and in service to the human and common good contributes to the mission of Duquesne. Accordingly, a very wide range of research projects would fit within the scope of the Paluse Grant program. Moreover, the best insights of the Catholic intellectual tradition include openness to dialogue and commitments to non-defensive engagement. Projects that engage the intellectual resources of other faith traditions and relate these to the mission of Duquesne are welcome.
Proposals should be explicit regarding the relation of the research topic to Duquesne's mission. Faculty are encouraged to confer with the Director of the Center for Catholic Faith and Culture to discuss how particular research agendas meet Paluse Grant program objectives. The Director will provide interested faculty with an opportunity to discuss the scope of the Catholic intellectual tradition and the character of mission-related research and scholarship. Additionally, the Preliminary Proposal for applicants will foster conversation between applicants and the Director of the Center for Catholic Faith and Culture regarding how particular research projects fit within the objectives of the Paluse Grant program.
The Paluse Faculty Research Grant is made possible by the generous gift of Fr. Richard V. Paluse.
