New! Mid-Career Research Grants for Humanities Faculty

The Humanities Institute of the College of Arts in Sciences is proud to announce a new grant opportunity for Associate Professors in the Humanities: The Mid-Career Research Grant for Humanities Faculty.

 In order to expand and diversify the Humanities Institute‚Äôs support of the scholarship and/or creative projects of Humanities Faculty, we now offer a competitive grant for one course-release for an Associate Professor in the Humanities.  The intent of this grant is to provide support for Associate Professors working toward promotion. One grant per academic year will be awarded.

Application Deadline: February 1, 2020, to be awarded for the 2020-21 academic year. 

Eligibility:  Rank of Associate Professor at the time of application. While priority will be given to humanities faculty and projects, all faculty with a research project in a humanities area are encouraged to apply for the course-release grant, including those whose project has a substantive humanities component but who do not teach in a humanities department. Projects with an evident path to completion are most competitive, but they may currently be at any stage of the process.  Preference is given to faculty not participating in the Humanities Institute Seminar during the same award year as this Mid-Career Research Grant. 

To apply please go to the "Apply for a Grant" section of the Humanities Institute Website:
