Applications due by 6 October 2016
ABOUT: Graduate Research Matching Grants supplement competitively awarded humanities research grants of up to $5,000 secured from sources external to Texas A&M University. The Glasscock Center will award one grant per semester of $1,000. Applications should specify how the Glasscock Center’s support will augment what the external grant already makes possible.
The Glasscock Center supports humanities research in traditional humanities disciplines, which are usually grounded in qualitative methods. The Humanities are understood to include (but are not limited to) study in the following disciplines: modern and classical languages; linguistics; literature; history; political theory; jurisprudence; philosophy; comparative religion; ethics, the history, criticism, and theory of the arts. The Center’s grant programs encourage interdisciplinary and cross-disciplinary research that joins humanities inquiries with the humanistic social sciences and other research fields and methods. Research from non-humanities disciplines that takes an interpretive or qualitative approach to questions of meaning in human experience and endeavors are also welcome. Humanities inquiries are usually qualitative and address questions of meaning in the products of human culture and thinking. Research that is primarily quantitative and/or reliant upon the canons of scientific method usually falls outside the parameters of humanities research and thus may not be eligible for funding. If you are not sure whether your research contributes to the humanities, or for other questions about writing your application, please feel free to consult with the director, associate director, or a member of the Center’s advisory committee.
ELIGIBILITY: Graduate students in departments affiliated with the Glasscock Center are invited to apply.
