Humanities Forum Grants: Research on Human Nature
Applications are invited from Penn humanities faculty whose research concerns the 1999-2000 topic of the Humanities Forum: human nature. The six successful applicants will each receive a research fund of $5,000, which may be used to visit collections or cover costs of copyright permissions, photographs, or any expenditure that contributes to the proposed research. In addition, the six will be expected to participate as Fellows of the Humanities Forum Seminar (made up, as well, of the five external Mellon Fellows and the Forum Advisory Board)--a weekly gathering in which members take turns presenting their research to the group.
Applicants should submit a concise statement of their research plan (one page is sufficient) along with a c.v. to Wendy Steiner, director, Penn Humanites Forum, 116 Bennett Hall/6203 (or electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org) no later than May 17. Preference will be given to faculty on research leave during the 1999-2000 academic year. Funding is contingent on a successful grant to the Forum. Awards will be announced by the end of May.
