Faculty and staff are invited to apply for funding from the Carnahan Jackson Humanities Fund in the Fredonia College Foundation.

The application deadline for the 2020-2021 award cycle is Oct. 25.

The Carnahan Jackson Humanities Fund was established in the Fredonia College Foundation by David H. Carnahan and the Carnahan Jackson Foundation of Jamestown in 1993. The intent of the gift was to support events that enrich the cultural life of the university and include opportunities for community involvement. The award should 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 are funded within the humanities. Some examples include visiting artist, scholar, 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 fund's objectives; or students coming to campus to experience an on campus presentation. It is essential that any activity funded by the Carnahan Jackson Humanities Fund 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.

For more information, and to access and submit the Request for Proposals and application cover sheet, please go online. Questions about the 2020-2021 award cycle should be directed to Tim Murphy, director of Development, in the Fredonia College Foundation office at 673-3321 or via email.
