Grant Description
Fellowships of $4,000 and $5,000 to Wyoming researchers and faculty members at a designated IHE for collaborative work related to the humanities. Fellows will produce a performance, publication, external proposal, or exhibit. Preference will be given to projects that have a public component. Requests will be accepted from faculty and researchers at the University of Wyoming.

The Wyoming Institute for Humanities Research calls for UW faculty and researchers, regardless of rank, to apply for Humanities Research Group fellowships for Academic Year 2023-24.

Fellows will work together in a weekly Research Group meeting, in which fellows will workshop projects in progress.

Fellows will commit to the submission of a publication, performance, or exhibit of their work, or an external grant or fellowship proposal within twelve months of the receipt of the fellowship and to acknowledging the humanities research institute their final publication, performance, or exhibition.

Projects are welcomed in the humanities, broadly defined. Interdisciplinary work is welcome, provided that the humanities content of the project is substantial. Fellows will be encouraged to share their work with the community; therefore projects with a public-facing character will receive special consideration. For a definition of the humanities, please see https://www.thinkwy.org/about-the-humanities/.
