International Programs and Studies has created a funding category for faculty members in the humanities (English, history, philosophy, religious studies, classics and languages) and arts (performing and visual) who are conducting research and writing on topics of an international character. A limited number of research grants of $500 each will be awarded for 1995-96. These funds may be used for a variety of research- support purposes, including the purchase of books, reference works, computer software and connection time, long-distance telephone and similar types of expenses. Travel, equipment, professional dues and registration fees will not be allowable expenses. To apply, send a description of the research project or activity for which the grant would be used, including the general purpose of the grant. The description should not exceed 500 words (plus budget). Also enclose a brief biographical sketch and list your own recent publications that are relevant to the project, if any. Proposals are due March 1 and should be sent to Humanities Grants, International Programs and Studies, 303 International Studies Building, MC-480.
