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.

Compliance Office releases Export Control Manual

The U.S. export regulations impact many of CWRU’s activities, such as international collaborations, international travel, shipping items abroad, and even transmitting certain types of data to other countries by phone or email.

The Compliance Office has released an Export Control Manual designed to assist in the university’s export compliance efforts. Faculty, staff, and students will use it to maintain awareness of the university’s export policies and best practices.

A component of our training program, the 14-page manual is purposefully brief for ease of use and includes sections explaining the export laws, setting out the procedures that CWRU community members must follow, and answering Frequently Asked Questions. It ends with a one-page checklist for individuals to determine whether their activities may be subject to the export regulations.

University community members can access the Manual at http://www.case.edu/compliance/exportcontrol/ .

To request live export compliance training for yourself or your group, or if you have export control questions, contact Lisa Palazzo, Associate Compliance Officer and Director of Export Control and Privacy Management, at 216-368-5791 or lisa.palazzo@case.edu, or Boyd Kumher, University Chief Compliance, Export Control and Privacy Officer, at 216-368-0833 or boyd.kumher@case.edu.


American Association of University Women - Career Development Grants
The American Association of University Women strives to promote equity and education for women and girls. Since the organization’s founding in 1881, AAUW members have examined and taken positions on the fundamental issues of the day — educational, social, economic, and political.

AAUW is accepting applications for its Career Development Grants program, which provides funding to women who hold a bachelor’s degree and are preparing to advance or change their careers or re-enter the workforce.

Grants of up to $12,000 will be awarded to provide support for course work beyond a bachelor’s degree, including a master's degree, second bachelor’s degree, certification program, or specialized training in a technical or professional field. Course work must be taken at an accredited two- or four-year college or university in the United States or at a technical school that is fully licensed or accredited by the U.S. Department of Education. Funds are not available for doctorate-level work. Primary consideration is given to women of color and women pursuing their first advanced degree or credentials in non-traditional fields.

Applicants must be a citizen or permanent resident of the U.S. whose last degree was received before June 30, 2012. Funds are available for tuition, fees, books, supplies, local transportation, and dependent care.

Application Deadline: December 15, 2016

For more information visit the AAUW webpage.

Louisville Institute
As a center to support research and leadership education on American religion, the Louisville Institute seeks to nurture inquiry and conversation with respect to the character, problems, contributions, and prospects of the historic institutions and commitments of American Christianity. The institute supports research, reflection, and writing by academics and pastors concerning Christian faith and life, the practice of ministry, and/or religious institutions.

Grants of up to $25,000 will be awarded to support a diverse range of projects that may involve independent study, consultations, or collaborations involving pastors and academics. Of particular interest to the institute are projects that demonstrate potential to benefit the church in North America.

Projects may employ a variety of methodological perspectives, including but not limited to historical, systematic, and practical theology; the social sciences; history; ethics; or biblical studies. Projects may also be interdisciplinary in nature.

The PGR program is open to both academic and pastoral leaders in the United States or Canada. Applicants must have earned the terminal degree in their chosen vocation. For pastors, this is typically the Master of Divinity degree; for academics it is usually the Ph.D. or Th.D.

Application Deadline: October 1, 2016

For more information visit the Louisville Institute webpage.
