Thirty-four faculty members receive Arts and Humanities grants
Indiana University has selected 34 faculty members to receive research grants totaling over $1 million in the third round of funding through the university's Arts and Humanities Initiative.
The 2002-03 grant recipients were chosen from 77 proposals. Faculty members receiving the grants represent four IU campuses -- Bloomington, IUPUI, South Bend and Southeast. The grants will defray travel and other costs connected with the projects and provide time for faculty members to conduct their research.
In his 2000 State of the University Address, then-IU President Myles Brand announced a four-year, $4 million program to encourage faculty research in the arts and humanities. The program was implemented in response to declining levels of public funding for this research and creative work.
"The vibrancy and excellence of Indiana University includes the scholarship and the creativity of its faculty in the arts and humanities as much as in the sciences," said IU Associate Vice President for Research Jeffrey R. Alberts. "The funds we can award again for this year's Arts and Humanities Initiative are a mechanism to fuel this scholarship and creativity and help IU faculty inject more excitement and vitality into their academic disciplines, into society and into our classrooms."
