The Whiting Public Engagement Programs aim to celebrate and empower early-career humanities faculty who undertake ambitious projects to infuse the depth, historical richness, and nuance of the humanities into public life.
In brief, the two programs are:
- A Fellowship of $50,000 for projects far enough into development or execution to present specific, compelling evidence that they will successfully engage the intended public.
- A Seed Grant of $10,000 for projects at a somewhat earlier stage of development, where more modest resources are needed to test or pilot a project or to collaborate with partners to finalize the planning for a larger project and begin work.
Eligible UCR faculty are invited to self-nominate by the deadline for consideration. One applicant proposal in each category will be submitted to the Foundation as the UCR 2021-22 nominee by the Center Advisory Committee.
