Altman Scholars

Altman Faculty Scholars are expected to attend all Altman events, to collaborate with each other, to present some of their own research or creative work on campus during the year of the program, to link their courses to the program, and to help plan program events beginning in spring 2019.  Applicants should be aware that most Altman Program events occur weekdays at 5 p.m. and that the Faculty Seminar usually meets Fridays around lunchtime; selected faculty are encouraged to request teaching assignments that do not conflict with these times.  Each Altman Scholar will receive a $2,500 professional expenses account for use during the 2019-2020 academic year. Applications should NOT be submitted until the 2019-2020 program toping is announced.

To apply, please read the 2019-20 Altman Program description and provide the Humanities Center Steering Committee with a c.v. and a 1-2 page statement indicating how your research and teaching might contribute to, and benefit from, the program. Please also include the name of one or more outstanding students who could benefit from participation as undergraduate or graduate fellows.  These students will be nominated and invited to apply. Please submit your application in a single PDF document titled “[Yourlastname] 2019 Altman Application.pdf” to by 5 p.m. Monday, January 28, 2019. 

Please direct questions to Tim Melley, Director of the Humanities Center, at
