Summer 2016 HWW Seed Grants

The Andrew W. Mellon foundation has just announced a renewal of funding for the Humanities Without Walls consortium of 15 Midwest research universities (including the University of Iowa), led by Professor Antoinette Burton and the Illinois Program for Research in the Humanities at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. In the next cycle, the focus will be The Work of the Humanities in a Changing Climate.

The Obermann Center will fund seed grants of $1,000-$5,000 in summer 2016 for faculty members who wish to invite colleagues from one or more consortial institutions to discuss proposals for major funding (the actual grant application deadline will be in October 2016). To learn more about the work of the consortium in the first grant cycle, visit the HWW website. More details will be posted here in April, and Obermann will hold an information session in late April to share information about the grant and our seed grants and to introduce possible collaborators here on campus.

In the meantime, please contact Obermann Director Teresa Mangum teresa-mangum@uiowa.edu if you would like to discuss possible proposals for a summer seed grant of $1,000-5,000.
