Faculty cohort named for first Grants and Fellowships Mentorship and Support program

In Spring 2022, the Willson Center launches a Grants and Fellowships Mentorship and Support program for a cohort of faculty members in the humanities and arts. This program is offered in partnership with the Franklin College, the Office of Research, and the Office of the Provost. Faculty who are admitted to the program will receive $1,000 into their research support accounts.

This program is designed to

  • Create a supportive environment for critique and development of grant and fellowship proposals
  • Provide the tailored supports for individual faculty to be successful in applying for grants and fellowships

 

The faculty members selected for the Spring 2022 program are:

  • Nell Andrew, Lamar Dodd School of Art
  • Yuri Balashov, Dept. of Philosophy
  • Alison Farley, Hugh Hodgson School of Music
  • Lesley Feracho, Dept. of Romance Languages & Institute for African American Studies
  • Berna Gueneli, Dept. of Germanic and Slavic Studies
  • Sujata Iyengar, Dept. of English
  • Keith Langston, Depts. of Linguistics & Germanic and Slavic Studies
  • Pablo Lapegna, Dept. of Sociology & LACSI
  • Jane McPherson, School of Social Work
  • Karin Myhre, Dept. of Comparative Literature and Intercultural Studies
  • Laurie Reitsma, Dept. of Anthropology
  • Martijn van Wagtendonk, Lamar Dodd School of Art

 

The selected cohort will

  • Meet together on a regular basis at the group’s discretion over the Spring semester to share drafts, experiences, and build a supportive network of scholars engaged in applying for grants and fellowships
  • Learn about promising funding sources for their research and receive advice on writing persuasive proposals from invited mentors
  • Present working drafts of their proposals to each other
  • Be expected to have a plan for completed proposals for the coming funding cycle
