The Yale Environmental Humanities Program is pleased to announce the Environmental Humanities Grant Program. This program seeks to encourage humanities projects that engage diverse publics with urgent cultural, ethical, and social questions related to the environment and society. We welcome public humanities activities that address topics related to energy and climate, food and agriculture, human/environmental health, plant and animal species, urban and rural geographies and planning, and mining and other forms of extraction. By encouraging interdisciplinary and public-oriented approaches, we hope to expand our knowledge of the humanities and our intellectual community at Yale, in New Haven, and beyond.
We invite proposals from members of the Yale community, including students (undergraduate, graduate, and professional), postdoctoral fellows, faculty, and eligible staff. Funding for projects incorporating any media will range from $250-$2000 dollars, depending on the scope and requirements of the project. Note that application review will begin on February 3, 2020 and will continue until our funding is allocated. More details on the grant program and application instructions can be found here.
