Two new support programs for faculty and grad students; Emory to host online NEH grants workshop

Willson Center Department-Invited Artist or Lecturer program

The Willson Center Department-Invited Artist or Lecturer program supports speakers during the current academic year who would not fall into the distinguished artist or lecturer category, but whose expertise can nonetheless contribute significantly to illuminating current discussions in the field as well as enhance student learning. Due to COVID-19, the Department-Invited Artist or Lecturer program for academic year 2020-21 will provide for a $200 matching award to support a virtual presentation. Proposals are accepted on a rolling basis and considered at the first of each month. Funding is contingent on overall merit of the proposal and the availability of funds. See the Willson Center website to apply.

Willson Center Graduate Student Shelter Scholarship

The Willson Center Graduate Student Shelter Scholarship provides support of $150 toward arts and humanities projects as part of a graduate degree program. Application is open to any humanities and arts graduate student registered for an advanced degree.

Students should submit a brief (200 word maximum) proposal by email to the Willson Center (wcha@uga.edu) to include a description of the project as well as an explanation of need and intended use of funds. Students should also indicate their degree objective, department, and major professor/advisor with their submission.

Proposals are accepted on a rolling basis with a current deadline of October 9. Funding is contingent on overall merit of the proposal and the availability of funds.
