The Whiting Foundation is accepting applications from humanities faculty for its Public Engagement Fellowships. Whiting Fellows devote at least 6 months to a project that brings the humanities to new audiences. Fellows receive up to $50,000 to support leave or teaching release and project expenses. Past fellows have created apps, podcasts, teaching materials, websites, exhibitions and non-traditional monographs. Detailed instructions for applying are available online.
Spelman may nominate up to two faculty members for this opportunity. One must be a full-time, untenured humanities professor with at least two full years of service. The other must have received tenure between 2012 and 2017. If you are interested in being nominated, please email Claudia Scholz by May 15. In your email, indicate which of the eligibility categories applies to you. If more than two faculty members are interested in a nomination, OSP will convene an internal nominating committee, in keeping with the limited submissions policy.
The short-form application is due June 30.
