The Emeriti Center and the Office of the Provost are pleased to announce the inaugural funding cycle of the Emeriti Grants for Academic Activities. The new grants are intended to support emeriti engaged in any academic activities and may be used to offset expenses including, but not limited to, attending professional conferences, field work, and other research.

Awards will typically be made for expenses up to $3000 and are expected to be used within 12 months of the award. Emeriti will be notified of decisions in August. A committee of emeriti and members of the Office of the Provost will review proposals and make recommendations for funding to the Provost or her delegates. The next call for proposals will be in the Winter of 2023.

Award recipients are expected to give a public lecture or presentation (in-person or virtual) as a part of Emeriti Center programming within 12 months of the award before being eligible to apply again.
