HDF MiniGrant Application

HDF MiniGrant Application

Started in 1997 with seed money from the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Humanities Development Fund (HDF) at Furman University enhances courses in the Humanities beyond traditional teaching styles and strategies. This smaller funding pool can be used to enhance existing courses, such as adding community engagement, a new set of readings previously unfamiliar to the instructor, or technology in the classroom. It may also be used to fund student-centered interdisciplinary Humanities reading or research groups. It is a grant, and thus must be used directly toward resources or pedagogical travel ONLY; receipts required. Please use a University TAP card for expenditures and ask that the selected budget number be applied to use these funds once awarded.

We try to distribute funds among faculty in humanities departments and programs (Anthropology, Asian Studies, Classics, Communication Studies, English, History, Modern Languages and Literatures, Philosophy, and Religion) and all other faculty sponsoring Humanities-centered courses (e.g., art/music history, political/social/economic philosophy or theory, theater arts).
