Faculty and staff are invited to apply for funding through the Carnahan Jackson Fund for the Humanities for the 2019-2020 award cycle, to support events that enrich the cultural life of the university and include opportunities for community involvement.

The grant award will fund activities that have a major impact on the campus and on the Chautauqua County/Western New York region. Considering the goal of cultural enrichment, a variety of activities could be funded within the humanities. Some examples include visiting artist, scholar or performer; artist, poet or novelist in residence; sponsorship of an on campus event by a touring group or individual; matching funds for a larger grant in keeping with the fund's objectives; and students coming to campus to experience an on campus presentation.

Organizers note that It is essential that any activity funded by the Carnahan Jackson Fund for the Humanities have a significant element of community involvement, community participation or public performance. Proposals for activities or events that involve or benefit more than one college constituency will be favored.

The application deadline is Oct. 26.

The Carnahan Jackson Fund for the Humanities was established in the Fredonia College Foundation in 1993 by David H. Carnahan and the Carnahan Jackson Foundation of Jamestown.
