FHC Mini-Grant Application

FHC Mini-Grant Application

Started in 1997 with seed money from the National Endowment for the Humanities, Furman Humanities Center (FHC) Mini-Grants enhance courses in the humanities.

This smaller funding pool (capped at $250) can be used to enrich existing courses, such as adding community engagement, a new set of readings previously unfamiliar to the instructor, technology in the classroom, or convivial social gatherings such as meeting for coffee in the The Library Café. 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 Purchasing card for expenditures and ask that the selected budget number be applied to use these funds once awarded.

We aim to distribute funds among faculty in humanities departments and programs as well as humanities-related courses (Anthropology, Asian Studies, Classics, Communication Studies, English, History, Modern Languages and Literatures, Philosophy, Religion, EES, and WGSS) and all other faculty sponsoring Humanities-centered courses (e.g., Art/Music History, Political/Social/Economic philosophy or theory, Theater Arts).
