ABOUT: The Glasscock Center offers up to two awards of $1,500 each per semester to support humanities research projects conducted by Academic Professional track faculty employed by Texas A&M University. These funds may be used to support normally reimbursable research expenses connected to a humanities research project. Academic Professional Track Faculty Research Fellows are strongly encouraged to participate in the intellectual life of the Center by attending symposia, lectures, faculty colloquia, and other events during the fellowship year. A small portion of funds may be used to pay graduate students for activities such as transcription, translation, graphic skills and other similar tasks (excluding indexing) that advance the project to completion, but the main focus should address faculty research. We also encourage applications which connect with diverse communities through publicly engaged scholarship. In collaboration with the Center of Digital Humanities Research, additional funding may be available for projects which include a digital humanities component, e.g., digital exhibits, data visualization and analytics, and digital editions.
ELIGIBILITY: All Academic Professional track faculty employed by Texas A&M University are invited to apply (PostDocs are not eligible). Fellows must be in residence at Texas A&M University during their fellowship year and are expected to contribute to the intellectual life of the Center.
APPLICATION: Applications should identify a specific humanities research project to which support funds will be applied. All applications will be reviewed by the Glasscock Center Advisory Committee and will be judged on the basis of merit and need.
ADDITIONAL MATERIALS: Please include a current two-page c.v.
Applications will be considered incomplete until all information has been received, at which time an e-mail confirming receipt will be sent to you.
