************************************************************************

Stay tuned for funding opportunities — calls for funding will appear in late February/early March:
Small Research Grants: The Center will award small grants for GMU faculty (tenure-line and term) conducting research in the humanities. Funds might be used to support small research trips,  book publishing costs, image permissions, etc. All who receive funding will be required to give a talk (formal or informal) at the Center.

CHR Residential Fellowships for Faculty and Graduate Students: These semester-long fellowships provide two course-releases (for faculty) and tuition and stipend (for grad students) and require residency at the Center. We will accept fellows from as wide a range of disciplines, departments and programs as possible who are working on projects related to our theme (TBA). Call for applications for Fall 2021 will appear later this month.

I hope to see you all at our events this semester!

Take care,
Alison
