Graduate Research Matching Grant Application

Applications due by 12 October 2017

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.

ADDITIONAL MATERIALS: Applicant must send documentation confirming external funding.
