Deadline to apply: Applications may be submitted up to one year in advance, but must be received no later than the 15th of the month before the start of the quarter in which the workshop will occur: Sept 15 (Fall 2020), Dec 15 (Winter 2021), March 15, 2021 (Spring 2021) or June 15 (Summer 2021).
Project Development Workshop Awards provide funds for a CHASS faculty member to host scholars or subject matter experts for an open discussion of the faculty member’s book manuscript, film, play or substantial creative project with the aim of moving it towards completion and submission (to a press, film festival, theatre, gallery show etc.) Funds may be used for workshop refreshments, travel (air/ground transport, lodging) and/or modest honoraria. Due to COVID-19, project workshops in the coming year will be hosted online.
Special consideration will be given to projects that have potential to impact tenure and/or promotion.
Applicants should identify a first and second choice for the quarter in which they hope to host a workshop and should clearly identify how the workshop fits within their completion and submission timeline.
In addition to the $500 award, the Center will match up to an additional $250 of committed co-sponsorships to the workshops. Cosponsorships may be pursued before or after application but must be confirmed before the workshop planning begins.
