The Technē Institute for Arts and Emerging Technologies fosters new work at the intersection of artistic expression and emerging technologies within the research and pedagogical mission of the University at Buffalo.
The Technē Institute for Arts and Emerging Technologies solicits proposals for faculty fellowships of up to $5,000 for innovative projects within the field of art and emerging technologies.Technē project funding is designed to support the initiation or continuation of arts and technology projects by individual artists working solo or in collaboration with other artists and scientists. The program will be funded across artistic disciplines and is open to a range of genres and platforms. Collaborations with other disciplines—including those outside UB—will receive priority.
While the maximum expected award under this program is $5,000, in exceptional cases, larger budgets may be considered. Fellowships are intended to supply project “start-up funds.” Fellows are expected to seek additional funding for proposed projects. Individual applicants may apply repeatedly with different projects, but may not receive funding more than once every three years.
Funds will be dispersed to individual departments and all expenditures must be consistent with NY State funding guidelines. Because of their experience Technē Fellows will be asked to serve as reviewers for future proposals.
The extended deadline is November 15, 2014. Applicants will be notified by December 1.
November 1, 2014 – June 30, 2015
The following project types are eligible for funding:
Fellowships are open to all regular full-time, tenure-line faculty at UB.

All funding must be expended by this date.
All fellows will be required to publicly present their research at a Technē-sponsored event at the conclusion of the funding period. Presentations will be announced and promoted by Technē.
