Virtual Co-Sponsorship Class Lecture Grant

As travel plans remain uncertain, visits to campus by guest lecturers are happening virtually. In an effort to support courses in the humanities and humanistic social sciences, the Glasscock Center is facilitating bringing the expertise and resources of scholars outside of TAMU to the virtual classroom with a new, responsive grant.

The Glasscock Center is offering 10 grants of $500 each to faculty who wish to schedule a virtual class lecture by a ‘visiting’ scholar. The purpose of this grant is to enhance course content through external faculty guest lectures that serve the class curriculum. This grant differs from our general Co-Sponsorship Grant in that it is specifically intended to bring a guest lecturer to class. Applications will be judged based on the extent to which the guest lecture will enhance the student learning experience.

Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis with a final deadline of October 16. Applicants are encouraged to submit their proposals as early as possible in order to plan for the semester. Grants may be used anytime during the 2020-21 academic year. Lectures will not be funded retroactively. One guest lecture per application will be funded, and funds are only to be used for speaker’s fees.

Eligibility: Faculty in affiliated departments are eligible to apply.

ADDITIONAL MATERIALS: Please upload a c.v. (or equivalent documentation) for the proposed presenter.

Deadline: Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis with a final deadline of October 16.
