In 1996 The Faculty of Social Science received a bequest from the estate of Agnes Cole Dark, who attended The University of Western Ontario in the 1930s. In her will, Agnes Cole Dark specified that the bequest must be used "to promote the humanities, individual and world understanding and world peace".

Applications for seed money for new projects or for support, including travel, to advance research will be considered. However, because funds are limited, the Committee is less likely to recommend support for projects that already have significant external funding; for travel to attend regular annual professional meetings; or for course materials, teaching aids, supplies, and services that could be made available through other means (e.g., start-up funding, professional allowance). All equipment purchased with these funds is the property of the University of Western Ontario and must be labelled as such.

Application Details: The Dean of Social Science has decided to use the income from the Agnes Cole Dark bequest to support research in the Faculty through a number of annual awards. This year the maximum value of an award is $2,500 for one year. The Dean grants these awards with the help of a Faculty Awards Committee. Every Fall, the Committee invites applications from Social Science faculty members. Graduate students are not eligible to apply.To apply, please complete an Agnes Cole Dark Fund application form and submit the application, signed by the Department Chair, to the Dean?s Office by March 11, 2011. If awarded, funds will be made on May 1st.
NOTE: Letters of Intent and Full Applications are to be processed through Research Development Services for institutional signatures, and are to be accompanied by a completed RDAF form (bearing applicant, Chair and Dean signatures). Requests for Institutional signatures should be received no less than 3 days prior to the posted Sponsor deadline.
