2010 Einaudi Center seed grants fund projects from malaria research to documentary film

A project to explore the spread of rice agriculture and language diversification and another that examines the recent history of water management across the French Mediterranean are among 10 projects that received seed grants from Cornell's Mario Einaudi Center for International Studies in 2010.

The grants, awarded through biannual competitions in the spring and fall each year, are intended to advance international studies at Cornell, with special emphasis on projects by junior faculty where "seed funding" serves as preparation for external funding requests, have long-term benefits to Cornell international studies, and are related to the Einaudi Center's initiatives.

Winners of the spring 2010 competition:

Fall 2010 competition winners:

Applications for the next seed grant competition are due Feb. 15, 2011.
