Grants, Fellowships & CFPs


DHI Faculty Awards for Network Collaboration and Public Engagement- EXTENDED

Event Date: Monday, March 12th, 2018

Sponsored by: DHI

Only Faculty in the humanities, arts, and qualitative social sciences are eligible for this grant, fellowship, or residency.

With support from the Dean of the College of L&S and the arts & humanities consortium Imagining America, the UC Davis Humanities Institute is accepting applications for two funding opportunities for faculty members in the humanities, arts, and qualitative social sciences. The awards address key areas of expressed need and will support collaborations with colleagues outside the UC (DHI Network-Collaboration Fellowships); and community-engaged work (DHI Public Engagement Fellowships). Successful applicants will receive the awards as research funds to be transferred to their home departments. Faculty members are able to apply for both funding opportunities.

 

DHI Network-Collaboration Fellowships

Aimed to support faculty who wish to collaborate with colleagues outside the UC, the Network-Collaboration award would support travel for a UC Davis faculty member to visit a collaborator and/or to bring 1-2 external collaborators to UC Davis. The program represents a high-impact investment that fosters research or creative networks, raises the profile of our faculty, and seeds future grant proposals (see criteria below). Five fellowships of up to $4,000 each will be awarded in this category.

NOTE: Please include the names and contact information of prospective collaborators in your proposal.

 

DHI Public Engagement Fellowships

The DHI in partnership with Imagining America presents this fellowship opportunity in an effort to support faculty who wish to pursue a community-engaged research or creative project that has a substantive community tie-in [see criteria below]. Fellowships awarded will receive funding up to $5000 and (1) complimentary 2-Day registration to the Imagining America 2018 National Conference, held October 19-21st in Chicago IL.

NOTE: Please include the name and contact information of your community partner in your proposal.
