Humanities Facilitating Fund
This is an new opportunity from OVPR aiming at supporting scholarship in the humanities at CCAS. Professor Tyler Anbinder of History Department has convened a group of colleagues representing different units of humanities to discuss the best ways to take advantage of this opportunity. That has led to the Call for Proposal, which was sent to humanities faculty recently. If you wish to pursue this, please following the guideline to submit your proposal to Prof. Anbinder at firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday, April 30, 2018.
