Harvard President Drew Faust today invited scholars doing innovative work of significance to contemporary China to submit preliminary “expressions of interest” for funding from the Harvard Global Institute (HGI) for the 2016–17 academic year.In October, Faust announced the creation of the HGI to support scholarship and programs that will deepen Harvard’s international engagement and promote University-wide research to address major global challenges. The institute will support projects that ally Harvard faculty and students with scholars from outside the United States to investigate problems of international consequence, produce findings, and advance goals in ways that achieve significant impact both here and abroad.“The original impetus for the institute arose from the recognition that, although Harvard did not believe the establishment of campuses outside the United States to be advisable, there was nevertheless reason to consider building upon our existing intellectual presence at select international sites,” Faust said when the HGI was announced. “Such an effort, it was noted, might both strengthen existing programs and enable faculty without deep prior international experience to situate their work in a broader global context.”In its inaugural year, the HGI will fund proposals for interdisciplinary research on issues that are of import to China and of relevance to other parts of the world. Research will take place on the Harvard campus and in China, where operational assistance will be provided by the Harvard Center Shanghai.Funding will be available for both large and small grants.The large-scale grants will support multi-faculty, cross-School, cross-discipline, integrative projects tackling problems or issues of global relevance that build on existing research and include significant collaboration with scholars in China and potentially in other countries. The funding for these projects will be $500,000 to $1 million annually, with the possibility for up to two years of funding.Smaller grants will support innovative, interdisciplinary projects that also concern issues of global significance with a clear China focus. The projects may involve faculty from only a single School at Harvard, but preference will be given to cross-School collaborations. These grants will range from $50,000 to $100,000, also for up to two years.The proposals will be reviewed by a committee consisting of the president’s senior adviser for global strategy, the vice provost for international affairs, and the vice provost for research. Based on this review, a subset of proposals will be chosen to participate in the final selection. The president will decide on the final awards by the beginning of the 2016–17 academic year.
Orlando Pirates have dismissed reports that goalkeeper Fatau Dauda could be leaving the club in the January transfer window.Dauda, who arrived in South Africa in June, is yet to make his debut for the Sea Robbers.Recent reports suggested the Ghana number one may be loaned out next month to protect his place in the Black Stars squad which is set to compete at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.However, Bucs administrator Floyd Mbele told KickOff.com that Dauda is staying put.”Dauda has a contract with us and I don’t know why people are making this an issue,” Mbele says.”This is like asking you to leave Kick Off and join Soccer Laduma when you have a contract with your current employers. “We have spoken to Dauda and the coach in Ghana has spoken to our coach. He understands the situation.”Dauda is being kept out of the Pirates team by Senzo Meyiwa.
