Each year, the *This Is Not A Drill* program convenes five NYU faculty fellows and five to ten NYU student fellows. Faculty fellows receive a research-focused reimbursable stipend to develop their *This Is Not A Drill* project. They convene regularly as the *This Is Not A Drill* working group. All fellows exhibit their work at the annual *This Is Not A Drill* exhibition.


Who is eligible to apply?

Any NYU US-based full time faculty member eligible for PI/PD status is eligible to apply. This includes Tenure/Tenure-Track Faculty, Continuing Contract Faculty and Honorific Research Faculty (ie, employees who also hold faculty titles such as Research Assistant Professor, Research Associate Professor, etc.). Professional Research Personnel (ie, employees with professional research titles such as Assistant Research Scientist, Associate Research Scientist and Senior Research Scientist, etc.) are also eligible. Adjunct, emeriti and retired faculty are not eligible to apply.

What expenses are permissible?

All expenses must be related to advancing your research on technology, the climate emergency, equity, and creative practice; running your project over the course of the year and producing an artwork that can be showcased at the exhibition. All reimbursements are subject to university and TSOA reimbursement policies. Fellows must take into consideration a product’s life cycle and environmentally safe disposal prior to purchases, and choose eco-friendly options wherever possible (more information on Green Procurement here).

What is the work that is expected of me?

Working group members will develop their respective projects for the final exhibition; participate in monthly working group meetings (including presenting progress updates; providing feedback on group members' projects; inviting and/or being in conversation with invited guest speakers, etc.); running a student competition for their related projects and mentoring awardees; assisting in the planning and execution of the final exhibition; and helping to build community at NYU focused on art, technology, equity, and the climate emergency.
