Joint Initiative Program (JIP)
JIP was terminated in March, 2009.
The Joint Initiatives Program (JIP) provides awards to teams of individuals comprised of at least two graduated Sylff fellows to confront contemporary issues of social relevance approached from regional or transnational and trans-disciplinary perspectives. It is an opportunity for the Sylff community to collaborate with each other and contribute to society.
There are two categories of projects.
1. Social Research
Social research refers to academic research, the results of which are intended to be published in peer-reviewed academic and/or professional journals or publications.
2. Social Action
Social action projects relate to community-based activities, outreach activities, workshops and other activities that are intended to further the humanitarian goals of the Sylff Program.
