Research Sprints

Research Sprints: One Week, One Project across boundaries

Research Sprints offers all faculty and academic staff the opportunity to collaborate intensively with a team of expert librarians for one week on a research or instruction project. 

2020 Research Sprints will focus on interdisciplinary projects that cross boundaries between two or more disciplines. Due to KU Libraries commitment to interdisciplinary work, each selected project will be supported by a $1000 stipend. 

The Research Sprints committee is now accepting applications through March 6, 2020. Contact a member of the committee with any questions.
