Humanities Center Grants

Reading Group Grants
The Center is pleased to announce grants to facilitate interdisciplinary reading groups across the humanities.  If you participant in or would like to form groups of at least five scholars and/or students representing at least two formal disciplines, the Center offers grants of up to $1000 per year to purchase books or other objects of study (Films, music, etc.) to support the exchange of ideas in such a format.  Our intention with these grants is to support informal connections over group reading in order to facilitate more formal connections in the form of collaborative research, teaching, and community outreach projects.
