Qing Luo, assistant professor of landscape architecture, is one of 15 Oklahoma State University faculty members awarded a Humanities, Arts and Design Grant presented by the OSU Office of the Vice President for Research. The grants are intended to advance the recipient’s scholarship or creative artistry.

Oklahoma State University faculty in the humanities, arts and design have been awarded research grants in a new funding program from the Office of the Vice President for Research. Grants of up to $10,000 were awarded to 15 tenured and tenure-track faculty to fund a research project in their areas of study. 

"Researchers in the humanities-, arts- and design-based disciplines are essential to the vibrancy and success of great research universities like OSU,” said Vice President for Research Dr. Kenneth Sewell. “Their research informs and enriches how we understand and experience the world. These grants will allow the recipients to extend the reach of their work even further."

To be considered, faculty submitted research proposals describing the importance and impact of their projects and how they will advance their scholarship or creative artistry.
