Glasscock Faculty Research Fellowship Application
The Glasscock Center for Humanities Research annually funds a number of Faculty Research Fellowships up to $5,000 each.
This fellowship is for the academic year. However, to facilitate summer research, funding will be made available for activities between May 31st of the award year and August 31st of the following year. (For example: May 31, 2023 to August 31, 2024).
Eligibility: Full-time faculty members for whom research is a formal component of their annual assessment are eligible to apply. Must not have received the Glasscock Faculty Research Fellowship in the last two years.
These fellowships combine both the former faculty archival/field work grants with research fellowships. These awards are designed to address a need for funding for research that could not be accomplished otherwise in order to complete a book project, major article, or series of articles, or other equivalent research projects that makes an impact in the faculty member’s field and humanities in general. Research from non-humanities disciplines that takes an interpretive or qualitative approach to questions of meaning in human experiences and endeavors is also welcome.
Funds may be used for archival and fieldwork, conference participation, software, or other normally reimbursable expenses. This fellowship does not include release time, and it cannot be used for faculty salary or course buyouts. A portion of the funds may be used to support a graduate student working on the project, but the majority of the work should be undertaken by the awarded faculty member.
Recipients of the fellowship are required to participate in the Faculty Colloquium Series, which will function as a working group for these works in progress, and acknowledge the Glasscock Center in any resulting publications or exhibitions. Projects will be chosen on the basis of their intellectual rigor, scholarly creativity, and potential to make a significant impact in the candidate’s field and the humanities generally.
