New Leslie Center Director Announced:
Three annual non-residential fellowship of up to $5,000 to support significant research projects.
Residential Fellowships aim to support Dartmouth faculty who for various reasons stay in the area during their Off-terms (and R-terms), but wish to work in a research-oriented environment. Dartmouth faculty would be appointed fellows and these individuals would, for one or two terms, be granted an office in the Leslie Center and work alongside the visiting fellows.
Completed paper applications should be sent via email to the Leslie Center for the Humanities.
The Leslie Center awards fellowships to full or part time faculty of any rank to support distinguished research or creative projects with a significant humanities component. Colleagues serving on the Leslie Center Advisory Committee will not be eligible for these awards, and preference may be given to faculty members who have not received funding from college sources during the past three years.
We offer three application cycles each year, with deadlines on November 1, February 1, and May 1.
These should be projects, either in progress or contemplated, that are clearly consistent with the goals of the Center as articulated in its mission statement and/or directly related to current programs and activities of the Center. Preference may be given to projects that show evidence of interdisciplinary innovation, with a humanities component, across academic disciplines and divisions. The nature and area of research are not stipulated in advance, but applicants will be asked to indicate clearly both the significance and practicality of the projects for which they seek support, and to explain how their work will be advanced by an award. Awards could be applied to research travel, but will generally not be awarded for computer or other major hardware purchases. The Center will exercise full discretion regarding the appropriateness of requests for funding.
The Leslie Center Advisory Committee will act as the selection committee for these awards. Applications are reviewed in mid-November, mid-February, and mid-May. The Center reserves the right not to make awards if applications appear not to warrant them. Funds must be used during the fiscal year for which they are granted. Funding not used during this period will revert to the Center budget.
