The Pomona Technology Fund (POM-TF) supports the use of advanced technology in faculty research projects.
The application period for the POM-TF is April-May. Information about this process will be emailed out to the faculty.
Research Computing is an ever-expanding field. At Pomona, it includes scholarship currently undertaken across the disciplines as well as scholarship Pomona College researchers aspire to perform. The POM-TF fund is meant for the latter population of Pomona researchers. The funds will ideally be used to help researchers apply new computational methods to their existing work or to open up entirely new fields of inquiry.
Examples of how POM-TF funds might be used to support research with technology:
Computation Research – explore ideas of how technologies such as High-Performance Computing, big-data analysis or machine learning can be incorporated into your research
Virtual and Augmented Reality – applications of Augmented/Virtual Reality (AR/VR) in research, such as exploring how the technology can be utilized in teaching and learning
Digital Scholarship and Digital Humanities – exploring the intersection between digital technology and research
All faculty and teaching staff are eligible to apply either as an individual or as a team.
We ask awardees to collaborate with us by doing the following:
- documenting project reflections via a mid-progress and final report
- sharing the lessons learned at an RITG faculty and staff development workshop or event
- considering sharing the project with the wider community through activities such as online communication, presenting at a conference, submitting an article for publication, or filming a project video for the RITG site
