internal competitions Beth Seaton 07 May 1998 13:01 EST

 I am very interested in hearing from others who have
 struggled with internal seed grant competitions;
 specifically, how you ensure that scientist, artists,
 humanists, and educators are all treated fairly.

 Our guidelines are really geared towards the scientific
 researchers.  We state that we expect external funds to be
 sought after the internal grant expires.  When we strictly
 adhere to the guidelines, it is diffcult to grant an
 award to a professor of English or even worse, an music
 professor.  Their work is so different and external funding
 so limited.

 Any advice, samples of guidelines, or comments are welcome.
