Mellon Humanities Summer Teaching Lab Grants

This grant supports a small group or "lab" of faculty and students for four to eight weeks over the summer, who work collaboratively to research and design a new humanities seminar in the research area of the faculty leader(s). During the subsequent academic year (AY 2018-19), the student(s) can then act as seminar "co-leaders" when the course is offered. Each faculty member will be provided with a $5000 stipend for planning and implementing the summer lab. Each student will be provided with up to $3000 in funding and on-campus housing for participating in the summer lab. Additional hourly funds are available for students serving as seminar "co-leaders" in the following academic year when the course is offered.
