  • Spencer Foundation Midcareer Grant Program

    12 May 2016

    The Spencer Foundation seeks applications to its Midcareer Grant Program, which affords scholars who between seven and twenty years from their doctorate an opportunity to spend one year learning about a new topic or discipline that will help them advance their work on a problem or puzzle of lasting significance in their research. The Foundation plans to support up to five midcareer scholars in this round with grants of up to $150,000 each.

    Applicants will be asked to center their request around the clear articulation and exploration of an important problem, or set of problems, of education that is well-aligned with their core interests and past scholarship. Applicants will also be asked to map the outer edges of what they have come to know through their earlier research and then articulate how they will move into what they do not yet know but hope to learn through a targeted midcareer program of study. In addition, applicants will be asked to fully describe how the acquisition of new tools or perspectives enriches their understanding of that problem and to present a well-thought out plan for acquiring them.

    The deadline for proposal submissions to this program is 4:00pm CDT on Tuesday, September 13, 2016.

    For more information, contact Christopher Tassava (ctassava or x5833) or consult the Foundation’s program webpage.

  • Roman J. Witt Residency in art & design at the University of Michigan

    20 November 2015

    The Roman J. Witt Residency Program supports the production of new work with assistance from the Stamps School community. The program awards one residency per academic year for a visiting artist/designer to work at the school to develop a new work in collaboration with students and faculty. A centerpiece of the residency is the open studio, a centrally located studio space that is part of the school’s main gallery where the resident carries out work in a public domain. This public visibility of the artist/designer’s process is intended as a teaching tool for the school as a whole. The residency is expected to culminate in the realization of the proposed work, as well as a presentation that summarizes the process and work accomplished.

    The Witt Residency is open to both established and emerging artists/designers who value collaboration, have good social and communication skills, and are interested in generating creative partnerships across disciplines. Witt Residents receive an honorarium of $20,000 for up to twelve weeks in residence served over an academic year. There is flexibility in how the time in residence is apportioned. In addition to the honorarium, residents will be provided with housing, studio space, and up to $5,000 funding support for project materials.

    Applications are due online by January 15, 2016.

  • NEH Summer Stipends for 2014

    25 June 2013

    National Endowment for the Humanities Summer Stipends support individuals pursuing advanced research that is of value to scholars and general audiences in the humanities. Recipients of the $6,000 grants spend two months of full-time work producing articles, monographs, books, digital materials, archaeological site reports, translations, editions, or other scholarly tools. Summer Stipends support projects at any stage of development. Since the College can only nominate two tenure-track or tenured faculty for Summer Stipends, all such faculty must submit applications to the College’s internal selection process. Non-tenure track faculty can submit applications outside of this process.
