Graduate Student Grants
The following guidelines are for reference only.
Faculty and/or graduate collaborations may apply for up to $2,000.
Centers and research clusters already supported by the Humanities Center may apply for up to $1,500.
The Humanities Center supports collaborations that foster vibrant intellectual communities. The new Building Intellectual Community grants provide funding for limited-term sets of activities that bring together colleagues on the UCI campus, in the Southern California region, or from elsewhere to engage in discussion and collaborative activities around a shared intellectual interest. These grants replace the previous Collaborative Conference grants by expanding the range of activities that can be funded and clarifying the purpose of the funding.
These collaborations should engage faculty and graduate students across disciplines. Building Intellectual Community grants may be used to support:
- academic conferences, symposia or colloquia;
- a series of events, such as speakers or film screenings, with a unifying theme during a quarter or the academic year;
- academic trainings (such as new methodologies across disciplines);
- work groups for fields that cross disciplines.
Building Intellectual Community grants may also be used for limited-term activities that bring humanities research to public spaces or community knowledge creation into academic research spaces.
