Carleton College Challenge Grant in Support of the Postdoctoral Fellows Endowment

Endowment for the college's Postdoctoral Fellowship Program.

Carleton College requests from the National Endowment for the Humanities a Challenge Grant of $350,000 in support of an endowed Postdoctoral Fellows Program in the Humanities. The College seeks to create a permanent endowment of $1.75 million that will ensure the ongoing implementation of the Fellows Program. The College proposes a four to one match of the NEH Challenge Grant. The Fellows Program aims to benefit both the postdoctoral scholar and the vitality of the humanities at the College. For the Fellows, the program provides an opportunity to conduct research, teach a reduced load, develop teaching skills, participate in a community of humanities scholars, and receive mentoring that will contribute to the candidate's professional development. For the College, the Fellows Program enables humanities departments to explore new approaches to disciplines, bring in new perspectives, and envision new ways to develop teaching and learning strategies in a discipline.
