Faculty Research Fellowships

We continue to serve the research and pedagogical mission of the University of Buffalo though the financial support of two, Faculty Fellowships each calendar year. 

Annual Faculty Research Fellowship

The Technē Institute for Arts and Emerging Technologies solicits proposals for faculty fellowships of up to $5,000 for innovative projects within the field of art and emerging technologies.Technē project funding is designed to support the initiation or continuation of arts and technology projects by individual artists working solo or in collaboration with other artists and scientists. The program will be funded across artistic disciplines and is open to a range of genres and platforms. Collaborations with other disciplines—including those outside UB—will receive priority.

While the maximum expected award under this program is $5,000, in exceptional cases, larger budgets may be considered. Fellowships are intended to supply project “start-up funds.” Fellows are expected to seek additional funding for proposed projects. Individual applicants may apply repeatedly with different projects, but may not receive funding more than once every three years.

Funds will be dispersed to individual departments and all expenditures must be consistent with NY State funding guidelines. Due to to their experience, Technē Fellows will be asked to serve as reviewers for future proposals.

These fellowships are awarded through an application process and culminate in the Techne Showcase, which features the winners and the research work they complete thanks to the award.
