Brain Bee 2012 

Funding is available for full-time faculty for these two types of community-engaged activities that further develop partnerships, involving students, faculty, and community members as participants in addressing public issues.  Awards are open to full-time faculty in all UAA schools and colleges and at all campuses. Junior faculty, faculty teaching GER courses, and faculty in under-represented disciplines are encouraged to apply.
