2018-2019 DHI Reading, Writing and/or Collaboration Groups

Application Deadline: Wednesday, November 28th, 2018

Sponsored by: UC Davis Humanities Institute

The UC Davis Humanities Institute is offering funding for faculty and graduate students
in the humanities, arts, and humanistic social sciences who are interested in forming
reading, writing and/or collaboration groups. Groups may apply for up to $500 per group.

The funds may be used to defray the costs of refreshments or meals associated with
workshops or regular group meetings. DHI funds for the groups will be sent to
organizers’ departments or programs. The program is open to all faculty and graduate
students, but junior faculty are particularly encouraged to apply.
Proposals should include the following (in a single pdf or Word file):

1.     Project description: a brief narrative (500 words maximum) describing the purpose of
the group and its proposed activities and outcomes. Please also include a list of faculty
and/or graduate student participants and their respective departments.

2. A simple budget.

The DHI will attempt to fund all the groups, but please note that funding for this program
is limited. If selective funding becomes necessary, the following may be factored into

— New groups: the group has not recently received funding from the DHI.
— Junior faculty: junior faculty are especially encouraged to apply.
— Interdisciplinarity, especially cross-college interdisciplinarity: the group consists of
graduate students and/or faculty from a number of programs, departments, and especially
colleges, including groups addressing topics and/or perspectives that have been
traditionally under-represented and/or under-served.
— Number of members: group is more inclusive, that is, aims to incorporate more

Please submit the reading and writing group applications by 5 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov.
28, at

If you have any questions, please contact DHI Associate Director Molly McCarthy,
