The Albany Law School and the University at Albany Affiliation Agreement strengthens the partnership between the two institutions, and leverages their respective strengths to expand course and degree offerings and joint research opportunities.
As such, the Law School and the University are pleased to offer two opportunities for cooperative initiatives by faculty and staff of the two institutions: a Collaboration Venture Fund and a Collaboration Seminar and Conference Fund. These Funds, offered annually, provide seed money to support projects that help advance the deeper partnership being forged between the two institutions. Proposals are reviewed by the Academic and Student Synergies Committee for the Affiliation.
- The Collaboration Venture Fund is intended to foster the development of collaboration, sponsored funding, research and program development to increase research and enrollment for both institutions. A Request for Proposals is issued each spring semester and provides funding for the following academic year.
- The Collaboration Seminar and Conference Fund will serve as a vehicle to support or extend proposed projects by contributing supplemental funding for planning workshops, conferences, travel of outside experts and other seminar and conference-related expenses or funding to support travel to a potential foundation funding source. A Request for Proposals is issued each spring semester and provides funding for the following academic year.
