THIS IS AN INTERNAL DEADLINE ONLY. THE 2017 DEADLINE FOR APPLICATIONS HAS PASSED. THE LAST DEADLINE WAS ON 04/17/2017. PLEASE CHECK THE WEBSITE FOR UPDATES

Research Support for Non-Tenured Faculty in the Humanities: The Council invites applications from Assistant Professors in the Humanities for support of travel and research projects, especially in cases where a modest grant might help junior faculty put themselves in a stronger position to apply for national competitive grants. International Collaborative Research: The Humanities Council invites applications for the support of projects involving collaborative work with one or more scholars from abroad. Preference will be given to proposals that are interdisciplinary and innovative which may have a methodological impact and, above all, involve interested faculty and students in such activities as seminars and round-tables. Visits to Cornell for Collaborative Research and Discussion: The Council welcomes applications to help defray expenses for visits of a week or longer by outside scholars who would work collaboratively with groups of faculty and students at Cornell. Visiting scholars might conduct informal seminars, meet with graduate students, and engage in collaborative research projects with scholars and graduate students on campus. The funding in this category might conceivably be applied to organizing a conference that brings several scholars to campus to collaborate on a joint venture with research benefits for the community.
