Engaged Humanities Mellon Grant
Please review these exciting opportunities in the Engaged Humanities provided by a major grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. The grant aims to advance work in the engaged humanities across the university and builds especially on ongoing faculty interest in cross-disciplinary collaboration, digital scholarship, and partnerships between the WFU Reynolda campus, historic Reynolda, WFU at the Innovation Quarter, and our surrounding community in Winston-Salem and beyond.
Engaged Humanities (EH) Course Planning and Implementation Grants (College)
2019 Information Coming Soon
These competitive grants provide new opportunities for cross-disciplinary faculty to team-teach engaged humanities courses in the curriculum, particularly those that facilitate course-based research addressing problems or challenges facing the Winston-Salem community or our region, and which have the potential to be taught more than once.
- Grants will support pairs of cross-disciplinary faculty (including partnerships with Wake Forest’s law, medical, and divinity schools) planning to design and offer team-taught courses, linked courses or co-taught sequential courses that will engage students in public humanities and emphasize collaborative research or creative work.
- Grants will be awarded in project years two and three (teams of two faculty members each, per year) at $4,000 per faculty.
- Each of the EH teams will also receive $3,000 in research funds to support the implementation of class-based research.
- Although planning will not typically include a course release, proposals may request up to one course release per faculty team.
- Call for Proposals 2019: Course Planning Grants cover Summer 2019 and Course Implementation Grants cover Fall 2019 and/or Spring 2020, and/or possibly Summer 2020, according to each faculty team’s teaching plans.
