We are now accepting applications for Summer 2022 Faculty Research Grants (DEADLINE: April 11, 2022)
Applicants may apply for a grant of up to $3,000 to support humanities-related research. All Mason tenure track and term faculty members (on a 9-month contract) are eligible to apply, and applications from term faculty are especially welcome.
We welcome applications from faculty across the university; you need not be in the College of Humanities and Social Sciences to apply as long as your project has a humanities dimension, or is humanities-related.
Your application should include the following:
- A one-page project description (and please indicate whether you have previously received funding for this project);
- Budget (with explanation if necessary);
The budget may include travel funding, a summer stipend (so that one might not have to teach), and costs associated with book production (except for subvention), among other research costs.
Please note that in any given year a faculty member may not receive both a CHR residential fellowship and summer funding.
Please submit a SINGLE DOCUMENT PDF labeled with your last name leading (ex. Smith CHR Summer Funding Application) to firstname.lastname@example.org before the deadline- Monday, April 11, 2022.
If you are awarded a CHR Summer Research Grant, you will be asked to participate in a CHR event in either fall 2022 or spring 2023—we might ask you to present your work alongside colleagues in a showcase event (here’s the event we hosted for our Summer 2021 awardees) or call upon you to moderate a conversation at one of our public events. You can also propose an event or format of your own.
