Endowment and a spend-down fund for an Institute for Global Humanities Initiatives.

Seeking new ways to engage and retain students, Montgomery College seeks $500,000 in Challenge Grant funds to revitalize its humanities programs and implement an Institute for Global Humanities Initiatives, responding to the Endowment-wide Bridging Cultures theme. The Institute, under the leadership of a distinguished faculty member and with guidance from a board of global humanities experts, will serve as the locus for a series of dynamic new learning initiatives in the humanities, including a faculty development program in Internationalizing the Humanities Curriculum, intentionally designed to expand scholarly and public discourse of diverse countries, peoples, and cultural and intellectual traditions worldwide. The College will match the federal funds two-to-one, raising $1,000,000 over the six-year grant period, for a total budget of $1.5 million. A six-year spend-down fund and endowment will be created to launch the Institute and its activities with comprehensive force and scope.
