Opportunities for Faculty

As a core part of its support for the arts and humanities at WSU, the Center offers a variety of funding opportunities to all WSU faculty pursuing scholarly and creative projects that have a significant arts or humanities components. For examples of the variety of disciplines and projects the Center supports, read about both current and previous Faculty Fellows on our Research and Creative Action webpages.

Center for Arts and Humanities Fellowships

CAH fellowships support larger-scale research, exhibitions, or other major scholarship/creativity efforts that advance the applicant’s professional development. Unlike projects supported by our mini-grants, fellowships are designated for longer-term (one year or more) projects. Projects should also advance University-wide arts and humanities goals or initiatives.

In addition to making a public presentation on their work, faculty supported by CAH fellowships also agree to meet monthly as a cohort. Organized by the Center, these sessions offer participating faculty opportunities for mutual discussion and feedback, as well as mentoring and networking. Faculty who have held a fellowship are required to wait one application cycle before applying again.

Application period currently closed.
