Faculty Grants

The Clement and Linda McGillicuddy Humanities Center provides financial support for humanities initiatives through two grant programs open to UMaine faculty, lecturers and adjuncts. 

  1. UMaine faculty can apply for MHC Sponsorship Grants of up to $250 to support public humanities and innovative teaching programs on-or-off campus.  There is no application deadline, new applications will be considered as they are submitted. For more information about Sponsorship Grants, contact The Center Director at michael.socolow@maine.edu.
  2. The Clement and Linda McGillicuddy Humanities Center Faculty Grant award applications are being accepted for maximum awards of $5000 to support faculty at all levels, for their research, community engagement, or innovative teaching proposals. Funds are used for expense reimbursement and cannot be used as compensation for faculty time. Email completed grant applications and budget forms, available for download below, to Director michael.socolow@maine.edu by October 19, 2020 for the fall deadline. 

Please note: For academic year 2020-2021, the McGillicuddy Humanities Center will not be awarding grants for travel.  This is in accordance with the University of Maine System’s current travel guidance regarding covid-19.  That guidance can be found here.
