Africana and African American Studies Faculty Grants
Minor Discretionary Grants
Requests for support for course development, course support, and faculty development related to courses in the minors in Africana and African American Studies, American Studies, and Race, Culture, and Power may be submitted by faculty teaching in the minors to the Minors Advisory Board. Requests may include such items as books, media materials, field trips, museum admissions, guest speakers and associated costs, professional conferences, and supplies. The funding will not support the purchase of food or beverages. Requests should be submitted by email to Mary Jo Alibrio, and they should itemize anticipated expenditures as precisely as possible, noting course in the minor (or planned course), dates of expenditure/activities, number of students, rationale for request, and anticipated outcomes. Faculty may make requests up to $500.00. The proposal will be circulated by email to the Advisory Board for its comments and approval within 3 business days, if possible. No single course or individual professor will be funded for more than $500.00 in an academic year. Please contact Mary Jo Alibrio or David Watters with any questions about proposals and procedures.
