To promote research in the humanities, 10 liberal arts tenured or tenure-track faculty will receive Humanities Research Awards totaling $150,000 from the College of Liberal Arts. The college is accepting applications now and will announce the award winners for the 2009-10 academic year in December. In order to provide a final push for research projects in the humanities that are under way, the awards will support research-related expenses such as travel, archival costs, supplies and materials. The three-year awards are capped at $5,000 per year, for a total of $15,000 each. Ten more awards will be distributed in 2010-11.
