Spring 2007 Funding Opportunities for H&S Students and Faculty


Contributed by Lynn Tordella

The School of Humanities and Sciences has set spring deadlines for proposals to its two competitive award programs, the H&S Ithaca Fund and the Emerson Humanities Collaboration Awards.

The H&S Ithaca Fund Award Program deadline for spring, summer, and early fall 2007 projects is February 19. Students and faculty in H&S are eligible to apply for these awards to support course-based activities that enhance teaching and learning, student/faculty collaborations in scholarly projects, and individual student projects. Award amounts range from $150 up to a maximum of $1000.

The Emerson Humanities Collaboration Award Program deadline for summer 2007, fall 2007, and spring 2008 projects is March 20. Meritorious H&S students who are eligible for financial aid can apply for these awards to work directly with a member of the Humanities faculty on a collaborative scholarly project. Both student applicants and their faculty mentors must submit materials as part of the proposal process. The Award offers students a stipend of up to $3,000 to enable recipients to devote time and attention to the work required to succeed in such scholarly projects.

Questions about eligiblity, specific projects, or application procedures, can be addressed to Stacia Zabusky, Interim Assistant Dean, School of Humanities and Sciences (274-3409, szabusky@ithaca.edu).
