Call for Fund Applications
The History of Ideas Program invites applications for funds.
If you are interested in applying for any of these funds, submit your proposal for an event, your senior thesis student's funding proposal or your course idea to our Program Coordinator Julie Seeger.
- Visiting Lecturers and Faculty Colloquia (up to $1,500)
Each year we plan to organize a series of interdisciplinary events around a broad theme. This year's theme is moral and cultural pluralism.
- Senior Thesis Awards (up to $500)
We're looking to support interesting projects related to the history of ideas in any field: arts, sciences, humanities or social sciences. (The subject matter is not restricted to the yearly theme.) Students receiving awards will present their project at an end of year colloquium.
- Senior Thesis Prize (around $500)
The recipient will be chosen from all theses submitted, not just from among the recipients of research awards.
- Research Support for New History of Ideas Courses ($1,000)
We're seeking to generate new and interesting courses with an interdisciplinary focus on the historical study of human thought and culture.
