Research Workshop Program

Endowment for the Stanford Humanities Center's program of faculty/graduate-student research workshops.

This application requests a challenge grant of $600,000 from the National Endowment for the Humanities to support the Stanford Humanities Center's campaign to endow its Research Workshop Program, which has been funded through two term grants from the Mellon Foundation. The Center's goal is to secure the future of workshops by raising permanent endowment to support a program that has changed the landscape of humanities research on the Stanford campus and beyond. The campaign to endow the workshops would sustain a venture that has won wide support from Stanford's faculty and graduate students, from Bay Area scholars, and from many visitors and fellows at the campus who participate during their tenure at Stanford. The workshop program has grown over nine years to become an integral part of the Center and the primary vehicle for Stanford faculty and graduate students to engage both in traditional and cross-disciplinary areas of research in the humanities. In each workshop, faculty and advanced graduate students meet regularly to present work-in-progress, to discuss the latest developments in their fields or to hear visiting scholars speak on research taking place at institutions around the world.
