Advancing Humanities Inquiry Across Disciplines: Learn about the National Humanities Center’s Residential Fellowships, Educational Resources, and Public Programs

Presenter: Dr. Tania Munz, Vice President for Scholarly Programs, NHC
Founded in 1978, the National Humanities Center in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina, is a private, nonprofit organization, and the only independent institute dedicated exclusively to advanced study in all areas of the humanities. Through its residential fellowship program<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__ufl.us18.list-2Dmanage.com_track_click-3Fu-3D0d966470f10506f0f3f363953-26id-3Db3985990b5-26e-3D522d9bf7ec&d=DwMFaQ&c=sJ6xIWYx-zLMB3EPkvcnVg&r=7qK_8vpC56wLTDrqOzYgzQ&m=TeNXGTuAVvxyLd2qu4nbWi8eQVPmyXi8r-VQGBUN2s8&s=8mvcl_Utnoy7Zq3ESkRM04Iki3NKaivsCUYefI63VUY&e=>, the Center provides scholars with the resources necessary to generate new knowledge and to further understanding of all forms of cultural expression, social interaction, and human thought. The Center’s education programs<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__ufl.us18.list-2Dmanage.com_track_click-3Fu-3D0d966470f10506f0f3f363953-26id-3D3a29e92bb6-26e-3D522d9bf7ec&d=DwMFaQ&c=sJ6xIWYx-zLMB3EPkvcnVg&r=7qK_8vpC56wLTDrqOzYgzQ&m=TeNXGTuAVvxyLd2qu4nbWi8eQVPmyXi8r-VQGBUN2s8&s=_Bez0jpVrDNLZgRTJMBq4DD5Qgg8gVUxHrtt5uj5I4I&e=> strengthen teaching on the collegiate and pre-collegiate levels. Model programs developed at the Center provide teachers and faculty with new materials and instructional strategies to make them more effective in the classroom and rekindle their enthusiasm for the subjects they teach. And the Center’s public programs<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__ufl.us18.list-2Dmanage.com_track_click-3Fu-3D0d966470f10506f0f3f363953-26id-3D465ab6b112-26e-3D522d9bf7ec&d=DwMFaQ&c=sJ6xIWYx-zLMB3EPkvcnVg&r=7qK_8vpC56wLTDrqOzYgzQ&m=TeNXGTuAVvxyLd2qu4nbWi8eQVPmyXi8r-VQGBUN2s8&s=SLhcOIzxQcZffceK8jNQAoKWWXfpY7pWiajECwoQ618&e=>, including national humanities advocacy resources, community lectures, panel discussions, symposia, and a rich multi-media library, promote understanding of the humanities and their foundational role in a democratic society.
At this workshop, Dr. Tania Munz will offer an overview of the National Humanities Center residential fellowships for humanities faculty, and the Center’s new summer residency program for which UF faculty and graduate students in the humanities are eligible. UF faculty who have held residencies at the National Humanities Center will be on hand to speak about their experiences as recipients of these prestigious awards as well as of the reviewing process, and offer guidance to potential applicants. Dr. Munz will also speak more broadly about the diverse resources that the Center offers for humanities teaching, public programming, and outreach. There will be ample time for Q&A about the funding programs and the application process.
Who should attend? UF faculty, graduate students, undergraduate students interested in humanities research and outreach, research communicators, research support staff, independent scholars in the humanities and humanistic social sciences (e.g., social and cultural anthropology, sociology, political theory, international relations, and other subjects concerned with questions of value).

DOE Office of Science Graduate Student Research Program

The Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Science is pleased to announce that the Office of Science Graduate Student Research (SCGSR) program is now accepting applications for the 2019 Solicitation. Detailed information about the program, including eligibility requirements and access to the online application system, can be found at: Office of Science Graduate Student Research Program<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__science.energy.gov_wdts_scgsr_&d=DwMFAg&c=pZJPUDQ3SB9JplYbifm4nt2lEVG5pWx2KikqINpWlZM&r=UALZumVOSHxxPN_AC0gJ0mllfVeic82FLUQdhwyQBm8&m=9-VaQCtreSOo5NnW2Nc6Vvk0e-nW18pAqDqbFwgME34&s=4oa-BfaHFkXvmZMag07CA1ddZFOGnFculzjfomY6Dco&e=>.   
The SCGSR program supports supplemental awards to outstanding U.S. graduate students to conduct part of their graduate thesis research at a DOE national laboratory/facility in collaboration with a DOE laboratory scientist for a period of 3 to 12 consecutive months—with the goal of preparing graduate students for scientific and technical careers critically important to the DOE Office of Science mission.
The SCGSR program is open to current Ph.D. students in qualified graduate programs at accredited U.S. academic institutions, who are conducting their graduate thesis research in targeted areas of importance to the DOE Office of Science. The research opportunity is expected to advance the graduate students’ overall doctoral thesis/dissertation while providing access to the expertise, resources, and capabilities available at the host DOE laboratories/facilities. The supplemental award provides for additional, incremental costs for living and travel expenses directly associated with conducting the SCGSR research project at the DOE host laboratory/facility during the award period.
The Office of Science expects to make approximately 50 awards in 2019 Solicitation 1 cycle, for project periods beginning anytime between October 28, 2019 and March 2, 2020.

Applications are due: Thursday, May 9, 2019 by 5 p.m.
