Call for Proposals
CEDA Micro Grant Program

The Cross Examination Debate Association is requesting proposals for grants requesting amounts up to $5,000.  The total available for the current call is $5,000, which may be awarded to one or more proposals.  The purpose of this program is to provide small grants to promote research into various aspects of intercollegiate debate and to aid in preparing researchers to acquire additional outside funding for debate research.  Additionally, the purpose of this program is to provide funding to carryout important projects that promote the well-being of intercollegiate debate such as recruiting and retention, assisting struggling programs, and historical or archival research.  In particular, CEDA is interested in proposals that meet the theme of “Promoting Regional Participation in Policy Debate.” Potential examples of proposals meeting this theme might study the decline of regional debate, define regional participation, experiment with tournament practices to increase regional participation, recruit sustainable policy debate programs or even host a tournament as a model for increasing regional participation.

Individuals representing and/or associated with dues paying member schools are eligible to apply as Primary Investigators (PIs).  Proposals may include ineligible investigators as long as the PI is eligible.  Proposals that show potential to produce pilot data that can provide a basis for additional grant funding from other sources will be preferred.  If a proposal does not show potential for future funding, it may be awarded if the applicants demonstrate that the project has inherent and lasting value for the debate community.  Qualitative and quantitative methods will be given equal consideration.  Proposals will be judged on the following criteria: value of results to the debate community, potential for aiding the grantee in acquiring additional funding from outside sources, potential for publication, soundness of methodological approach, and likelihood of completion.  Proposals must be academic in nature.  The organization will not pay for expenses related to tournament participation.

Proposals should include:  
1.   Literature review/contextualization (1-2 pages)
2.   Clear description of the project and the methodological approach (3-4 pages)
3.   Specific description and justification of budget items ( 1-2 pages)
4.   Specific description of plans for future funding and/or publication (1 page)
5.   Appendices can include: works cited, a CV for each principal investigator, a 1 page budget summary with brief explanations.

Formatting guidelines:
1.   Required sections should be clearly labeled with headings.  
2.   Proposals should be no longer than 10 pages long.  There is no page limit for appendices.  
3.   Proposals should be in 11 point, Times Roman font.
4.   Proposals should be double spaced with standard 1 inch margins.

Proposals should be submitted to Paul Mabrey (paulmabrey at gmail dot com) and are due February 13, 2015.  A committee of 5 members the CEDA Executive Council will evaluate the proposals.  Awards will be announced at the 2015 CEDA National Debate Tournament in Wichita, KS.  If funds remain, the committee may opt to solicit additional proposals at a later date.  

Awardees must submit written results/reports to Paul Mabrey no later than May 31, 2016.  Awardees may not be awarded multiple grants and will not be eligible for future grants unless CEDA has received a report.  Any publication activity because of support from these grants should acknowledge contribution from the Cross Examination Debate Association. Reports should be no more than 10 pages.  Additionally, the investigator(s) should provide CEDA with copies of manuscripts resulting from CEDA funding.
