One-Year Humanities Center Fellowship

Posted by on Jan 2, 2019 in Deadlines | 0 comments

One-Year Humanities Center Fellowship 2019 – 2020 In addition to multi-year fellowships, BYU’s Humanities Center also sponsors two one-year fellowships. Unlike the multi-year fellowships, these one-year fellowships will be awarded by application rather than appointment. The fellowship period will begin in the fall semester of 2018. Fellowships will come with a salary supplement of $2,500, a research stipend of an additional $2,500, and release from two courses (pending approval by the Fellow’s department chair. Applicants should secure that approval before submitting an application). Additional money may also be available for wages and supplies. Eligibility: These fellowships are available to all full-time, post-CFS faculty in BYU’s College of Humanities. Priority will be granted to faculty who plan to use the fellowship to aid the completion of a substantive research project (for example, a book, an article, or a series of articles). These fellowships are non-renewable and will not be awarded to college faculty who have held a center fellowship in the previous three years. Application: One-year fellowships are competitive. Interested faculty will be asked to complete an application consisting of a current vita and a prospectus of no more than seven double-spaced pages. This prospectus should outline the project, make a case for its significance, explain how the fellowship will be used, and give a time frame for the project’s completion. Deadline: Applications must be received in the College office by 5:00 on March 14th. A committee comprised of Humanities Center fellows from different disciplines will review and rank the applications.For specific questions regarding the application process or for advise on your specific proposal contact Matt Wickman. *Note that the dean must approve all committee decisions. Applicants will be informed of these decisions within a few weeks of the...

Book Manuscript Workshop 2020

Posted by on Jul 29, 2018 in Deadlines | 0 comments

What: BYU Humanities Center book manuscript mentoring workshop Brief description: The BYU Humanities Center will support a faculty member (or collaborative team of faculty members) working toward the completion of a book manuscript by paying two reviewers of the scholar’s choosing to read the manuscript and offer substantive feedback. One of these reviewers will be internal to the College of Humanities; the other will be an expert in the field from another institution. The external reviewer should be qualified to offer professional as well as intellectual guidance (e.g., in recommending potential venues for publication, potential readers for the press, and so on). Compensation: The center will arrange to bring the external reviewer to campus, provide one night (or, in some cases, two nights) in a hotel, pay for food and incidental expenses, and provide that reviewer a $1,000 honorarium. The center will also award the internal reviewer a $250 research stipend. Eligibility: All faculty who have successfully completed their CFS review are eligible for this award, though preference will be given to associate professors. Successful applicants will have completed at least half the manuscript as well as a book proposal at the time of the workshop. Timeframe/Timeline: The recipient of the award will work with the center to schedule the workshop dates and may use the awarded funding anytime during the 2020 calendar year. Successful applicants will be expected to submit the manuscript to a press within one year of the workshop. Deadline: December 2, 2019 Application materials: Applications must include a one-page cover letter, project description of 2-5 single-spaced pages (explaining the project’s argument, significance, possible venues, and short list of potential external reviewers—with a description of their suitability for providing intellectual and professional mentoring), and a sample chapter (or its equivalent) from the manuscript. Successful applications will make a case for the pertinence of the project’s contribution to its field and may provide supporting documents (e.g., evidence of contact with presses,...
