OSP Deadline: October 2, 2015
Sponsor Deadline: October 9, 2015
Award Amount: up to $300,000

New Directions Fellowships assist faculty members in the humanities, broadly understood to include the arts, history, languages, area studies, and zones of such fields as anthropology and geography that bridge the humanities and social sciences. Fellows pursue systematic training and academic competencies outside their own special fields in order to advance a cross-disciplinary research agenda.  

 

Eligible candidates include humanities faculty who received their doctorates between 2003 and 2009 and whose research interests call for formal training in a discipline other than the one in which they are expert. Such training may consist of coursework or other programs of organized study and may take place either at the fellows' home institutions or elsewhere, as appropriate.

Harvard has been invited to submit one proposal to the Mellon Foundation. The Office of the Vice Provost for Research (OVPR) will hold an internal competition to select one candidate to submit a full proposal to the Foundation.

The program supports day-long events organized by community cultural institutions to digitize cultural heritage materials; such events will feature corresponding public programming which may take place before, during, and/or after the day of the digitization event. Historical photographs, artifacts, documents, family letters, art works, and audiovisual recordings are among the many items eligible for digitization and public commemoration. Public programs could include lectures, panels, reading and discussion, special gallery tours, screening and discussion of relevant films, presentations by a historian, special initiatives for families and children, or comments by curators about items brought in by the public.

Deadline: June 25, 2015
OSP Deadline: June 18, 2015
Award Amount: up to $75,000 for planning and basic research; up to $350,000 for advanced implementation

 

The Research and Development program supports projects that address major challenges in preserving or providing access to humanities collections and resources.

This program recognizes that finding solutions to complex problems often requires forming interdisciplinary project teams, bringing together participants with expertise in the humanities; in preservation; and in information, computer, and natural science. 

 

All projects must demonstrate how advances in preservation and access would benefit the cultural heritage community in supporting humanities research, teaching, or public programming.
