Spelman may nominate up to two faculty members for National Endowment for the Humanities Summer Stipends. These highly competitive $6000 fellowships are intended to support two consecutive months of full-time work on a scholarly project. Successful proposals generally have a tangible product that can be produced in two months, such as a book chapter or article that is already conceptualized. Exploratory projects are not typically funded. Interested Humanities faculty members should contact Claudia Scholz by August 18, 2017. If more than two people are interested, we will have to convene an internal selection committee. Full proposals are due September 27, 2017.
NEH offers grants to HBCUs to
“strengthen the teaching and study of the humanities, in subjects such as history, philosophy, literature, religion, and the interpretation of the arts. These grants may be used to enhance existing humanities programs, resources, or courses, or to develop new ones. “
DoEd will sponsor a webinar on February 13 for faculty to learn about the Fulbright-Hays Groups Projects Abroad (GPA) program.
GPA supports groups of K-12 teachers, college students, and faculty as they engage in short-term and long-term overseas projects focused on training, research, and curriculum development in modern foreign languages and area studies. Short-term projects include seminars, curriculum development, and group research or study. Long-term projects support advanced intensive overseas programs that focus on languages, the humanities, or social sciences. The deadline for this program is March 7, 2017. All DoEd grant applications are due by 4:30 pm EST.
The Webinar will take place on Monday, February 13, 2017 from 1:00-2:00pm EST. Registration is required: http://tinyurl.com/GPA2017application
