Project Development

Hershey Humanities Project Development

The Wolf Humanities Center offers funding for project development to support tenured professors in the School of Arts & Sciences as they prepare to launch a major new project, such as a book, a digital humanities project, an exhibition, a film, or a public performance; develop a major project that is already underway; or kickstart / reframe a stalled project.

Up to $3,000 is available to support a workshop or other professional development experience that will take the form that is most useful to the person and project in question. Applicants are encouraged to contact the Wolf Humanities Center with their ideas in advance of submitting an application. 

Please note that our Hershey Humanities Project Development Support funds are intended to support the development of major scholarly projects by tenured professors in the humanities. If you are looking for event funding, please submit a request through Wolf’s Event Cosponsorship and Funding portal.
