Welcome from the Vice President for Research

CWRU researchers are among the most distinguished in the world. We have 16 Nobel Laureates among current and former faculty and alumni, 4 members of the National Academies of Sciences, 7 members of the National Academy of Engineering, and 8 members of the Institute of Medicine. We also partner with artistic and cultural institutions on a broad range of projects that make important scholarly contributions in the humanities and social sciences.

Extraordinary research requires an outstanding infrastructure. Our Office of Research & Technology Management provides support to seek out grant funding, to facilitate industrial sponsorship, and to transfer university technologies to the marketplace. This is a place for people driven to make a difference, and our office exists to help them succeed.

Contact us. We want you to see what our campus can offer.

Dr. Suzanne Rivera

The William H. Johnson Foundation for the Arts – 2015 William H. Johnson Prize

The William H. Johnson Foundation for the Arts is a nonprofit, tax-exempt organization that seeks to encourage African American artists early in their careers by offering financial grants. The Johnson Foundation awards grants to individuals who work in the following media: painting, photography, sculpture, printmaking, installation and/or new genre.

The William H. Johnson Prize is awarded annually to an early-career African American artist. For their purposes, "early-career" is a flexible term that should be interpreted liberally to include artists who have finished their academic work within twelve years from the year that a prize is awarded. For example, a person who finished their studies in 2003 is eligible to apply in 2015, but not in 2016. Age is not determinative, and artists who have not earned BFAs or MFAs are still eligible so long as they have not been working as a professional artist for more than twelve years.

The 2015 William H. Johnson Prize is $25,000 and the winner will be announced in December 2015.

Application Deadline: September 18, 2015

The program provides support for fellows to gain experience in epidemiological and clinical research as it relates to the care of individuals living with HIV/AIDS, chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV), and rheumatoid arthritis (RA).

Goals of the Program:

  • Support studies that will further strengthen the science and knowledge of HIV/AIDS, HCV and RA clinical research
  • Support the development of future clinical researchers


Application Deadline: July 31, 2015

William T. Grant Foundation

The William T. Grant Foundation’s Distinguished Fellows Program creates bridges between the research, practice, and policy communities. The program is designed to increase the supply of, demand for, and use of high-quality research to improve the lives of youth.

During the Fellowship, researchers are immersed in a practice or policy setting, and policymakers and practitioners in a research organization. This immersion helps Fellows to experience firsthand the needs and challenges of their new settings. It is expected that these experiences will facilitate the production and use of relevant, high-quality research and create stronger connections across the research, policy, and practice communities.

Proposed Fellowships must fit the Foundation’s focus areas. Specifically, this includes youth ages 5 to 25 in the United States. The program funds research that increases our understanding of:

  • programs, policies, and practices that reduce inequality in youth outcomes; and
  • the use of research in policy and practice.
Between one and four Fellows are selected annually. Each will receive up to $175,000 (including direct and indiect costs) for the total duration of the Fellowship. Fellowships may range from six months to two years. The structure of the Fellowship is deliberately flexible. Fellowship activity must amount to a minimum of half of a year at the Fellowship site(s) over the duration of the award. Thus, the minimum duration is six months of full-time work, but a quarter-time Fellowship may spread over the course of two years.

Letter of Inquiry deadline is August 4, 2015
