For Faculty

The Program in Early Cultures is presently accepting funding requests for the academic year 2021-22. Our current deadline is: Nov. 1. Please keep in mind that PEC accepts requests twice yearly: spring and fall.

Funding for Faculty

  • Intended to support relevant projects and events, including course-related programming, conference support, and graduate course development.
  • PEC will also consider larger proposals for programming developed by two or more faculty from different units, for one semester or a full year, to run a larger scale, theme-related program involving regular seminars, speakers, small or large conference support, special events support, performances, exhibits. In such a situation, in addition to funding, faculty directors may request course relief. 
  • Typically $500-$1500 for course support and events; $1000-$5000 for conferences.
  • Requests from Post-Doctoral Fellows will also be considered.
  • We will give preference to projects with strong comparative themes.
