Alumni College Fellowships through the Humanities Center (Applications due Dec. 9)

The Humanities Center at Texas Tech is calling for applications from full-time faculty (including professors of practice and instructors with continuing appointments) for our Alumni College fellowship competition for 2023. The deadline for application is December 9, 2022. Awarded annually since 2015, Alumni College fellowships showcase the excellent research of Texas Tech humanities scholars. Each year, the Humanities Center selects up to twelve fellows, who receive funding and who present their work at Alumni College, a public lecture series held in conjunction with Homecoming in the Fall semester.

Fellowships of $3,000 will be offered in support of faculty research in any facet of the humanities. Proposals must indicate a clear trajectory of scholarly outcomes, with funds available as of May 1, 2023, to be used by August 31, 2023. Each applicant will be asked to provide a 100 word abstract, a 500 word narrative, a preliminary budget and an abbreviated CV. Fellowship winners from the previous year's competition (i.e. those awarded funds for Summer 2022) are ineligible to apply. Applications are to be made via the Competition Space portal: https://ttu.infoready4.com/#competitionDetail/1884055 

For more details, please see http://www.depts.ttu.edu/provost/humanities-center/AlumniCollege.php or email Dr. Michael Borshuk at humanitiescenter@ttu.edu.

Request for Proposals: Humanities Without Wall's Grand Research Challenge (Applications Due 11/15)

(posted 8/8/22)

Humanities Without Walls (HWW) seeks applications for the Grand Research Challenge initiative.

The Humanities Without Walls Grand Research Challenge (GRC) funds collaborative and interdisciplinary humanities research projects that demonstrate a commitment to methodologies of reciprocity and redistribution. These methods are at the heart of HWW's work to support humanities scholarship that is truly “without walls”; i.e., research that is not only publicly and community engaged but co-designed by all partners in recognition that expertise is located within not just within research universities but also in scholars located in a wide variety of institution types, occupational positions, and the communities.

HWW's third Grand Research Challenge will require applicants to build a commitment to methodologies of reciprocity and redistribution into their project design that is clearly communicated in their proposal narratives, regardless of the research topic or theme.

Why Apply?

The Grand Research Challenge provides grants of up to $150,000 over a two-year period (January 1, 2023 - December 31, 2025) for teams pursuing research with a commitment to methodologies of reciprocity and redistribution.


To be eligible for funding, research teams must:


  • include participants from one HWW consortial partner institution and one or more of the following: Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs), including Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and Tribal Colleges and Universities (TCUs) and Hispanic Serving Institutions (HSIs), regional and community colleges, and community organizations (excluding for-profit entities)

Questions about the Grand Research Challenge may be addressed to HWW-info@illinois.edu.
