Together with university advancement, the office for the advancement of research and scholarship is rolling out a new crowdfunding platform called HawksNest.
Through HawksNest, alumni, family and friends of the university can directly support the research, scholarship and service projects of Miami University students, faculty and staff.
If you have a great idea that can be implemented for less than $6,000, create a HawksNest account and submit the project for review today.

Modeled on the Science Café concept originated by the PBS documentary series Nova, Discovery Café helps celebrate Miami’s Year of Creativity + Innovation. It’s a fun, casual — and free! — way to find out what’s new and next in nearly every field, from art to mechanical engineering to zoology.
At the next Café — scheduled for Thursday, February 18 — three of Miami University’s most dynamic researcher-scholars will explore the theme, “Space: The Final Frontier.”

One of the largest barriers to conducting interdisciplinary research is a social one: getting to know one another. On Thursday, April 6 at 5:15 PM in the AIS space on the first floor of King Library, OARS will host a networking event called "Speed 'Dating' for Researchers." The name of the event reflects a type of social networking for busy individuals. This event has been designed to allow time for faculty and staff to get to know one another, talk briefly about their research and creative interests, and exchange business cards. Register here.
Distinguished Scholar Awards honor faculty whose sustained excellence in research or other creative activity has brought them prominence in their fields. Junior Faculty Scholar Awards awards honor faculty who have demonstrated great potential in research or artistry and have achieved significant standing in their fields. Any faculty member may nominate or renominate any other regular tenured or tenure-track faculty member for a Distinguished Scholar or Junior Faculty Scholar Award. The deadline for submitting nominations is 5:00pm on March 7, 2016. Nominations will be reviewed, and awards decided, by the Committee on Faculty Research (CFR). Learn more.
As of August 1, 2015, Miami University no longer subscribes to ProQuest's funding opportunity database, Pivot, and instead subscribes to a similar product from InfoEd called SPIN Global Suite.
The switch will provide Miami's faculty, staff, and students with a substantially similar service at a savings of nearly $14,000 over the next two years.
The SPIN Global Suite is available to the Miami University community at http://infoedglobal.com. (Click on SPIN next to "CLIENT LOGIN TO:" at the very top of the page.) Please consider bookmarking this site for easy access in the future.
