The Humanities Center offers up to $300 to campus entities (centers, departments, programs) to support in a small way humanities lectures or other endeavors sponsored by the entity requesting assistance. The Center is committed to supporting existing humanities endeavors on campus without privileging any single department or program.
Applications will be adjudicated by Board members. Send requests in the form of an email with any accompanying materials in a single PDF. State the name, date, place, time, and anticipated audience for your event. If the event is a talk, it cannot be solely for a class but must be open to the university community.
Recipients of mini-grants must credit the Humanities Center in all publicity materials, announcements, and programs, whether printed, electronic, or orally delivered. Priority will be given to those applicants who can demonstrate support already in hand from their departments or programs or other sources.
Send requests to firstname.lastname@example.org. In the subject line, put the sender/requester's last name and mini-grant and the semester for which the grant is requested (e.g., Rowley mini-grant SP2018). Applications are accepted on a rolling basis.
Please consult the Humanities Center Calendar before making your application. Applications for mini-grants will not be accepted for events taking place on the same day as Humanities Center's guest speaker talks, Alumni College, or during the annual conference.
