Subvention Awards

Humanities Center Subvention Award

The Humanities Center invites applications for a subvention award of up to $1,000 to defray the cost of acquiring rights to copyrighted material or of acquiring images and/or rights to reproduce these in a forthcoming book or article. Funds will be awarded on a competitive basis, with a deadline in the fall and another in the spring. Applicants who are not awarded funds in a given semester may reapply the following semester. The Center would like to offer up to three awards in 2017-2018.

Your application should include an abstract of the book or article; a table of contents if the publication is a book; a copy of your contract with the publisher (and/or a letter from the publisher indicating intent to publish); a list of illustrations with captions (if funds are being requested for images); a list of expenses/budget that details the cost of acquiring the images or rights to copyrighted material; and the anticipated publication date.

Please include in your statement your name, academic rank, department, and full contact information, including cell phone number.

Applications should be sent as attachments WITH ALL MATERIALS IN A SINGLE PDF to humanitiescenter@ttu.edu.  Please be sure to use the following subject line: (Your last name) Subvention Award. (E.g., Iizuka Subvention Award.) The  fall deadline for submitting application is January 1, 2018. Decisions will be made by February 1. The spring deadline will be April 1, 2018 with decisions made no later than May 15.

Please send any questions to humanitiescenter@ttu.edu.
