The Glasscock Center supports research that advances knowledge through investigation, inquiry, and interpretation of human experience, culture, and expressive forms. Humanities research may be grounded in traditional humanities disciplines and methods, interdisciplinary and cross-disciplinary research, and non-humanities or technical disciplines which clearly foreground interpretive approaches to questions of meaning in human experiences and endeavors.
- Application forms may time-out after approximately 30 minutes. It is recommended that you save your work in another format and paste into the application fields. Applicants can create a user account which allows for saving applications-in-progress. When an application has been submitted successfully, a confirmation screen will appear in your web browser.
- All applications are reviewed by the Glasscock Center Advisory Committee (unless otherwise noted). This faculty committee is drawn from many fields, and applicants would do well to avoid discipline-specific jargon and should not assume that evaluators will be familiar with particular disciplinary preoccupations, controversies or schools of thought.
- All recipients of Glasscock Center funds are expected to submit a report (including a budget showing how the funds were used) at the end of the grant period, after the funded event, or when the project is completed.
- Events funded by the Glasscock Center must be free and open to the public.
- The Melbern G. Glasscock Center for Humanities Research must be acknowledged in any publicity for events and in any publications for which the research or the publication has been made possible by the Center's funds.
- Preference for each award may be given to individuals who have not received funding from that program in the past two years.
