Dear SAGE Community,

The Office of Indigenous Education is accepting applications for the SAGE Provincial Coordinator, Graduate Academic Assistant. Please email indigenous.education@ubc.ca with any questions.

SAGE is such a wonderful community of scholars! I am truly grateful for the learning experiences, and opportunities to serve Indigenous grad students for the past two and a half years. As of September, I have become a part of the team at the First Nations House of Learning, as the Aboriginal Student and Community Development Officer. I hope to be a resource to Indigenous graduate students in this role, and to continue being an active member of SAGE while I finish my PhD. I invite all of you to drop by room 184 at the Longhouse to visit anytime – please come say hi!

Thanks and enjoy the SAGE Digest!

Funding – Creating Humanities Communities Grant, National Endowment for the Humanities. Due: Feb 15, 2017

Posted on

Please see the grant announcement below.  NEH is looking to fund projects and programs in key “incentive areas” which include Alaska, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Utah, and Wyoming.  These projects can and should be collaborations between an institution, such as a university or university program, and a community entity, like a tribal community or tribal program.  The grants are smaller in nature due to their matching requirement, but matching funds can be raised over the course of three years.  NEH staff is available for consultation throughout the application process.  Please consider applying and pass along to others in these states for their consideration.  Application Deadline is February 15, 2017. 

 

The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) today announced Creating Humanities Communities, a new grant that supports grassroots humanities programs by encouraging partnerships and collaborations between multiple institutions or organizations in a town, county, region, or area. NEH hopes that the relationships built and strengthened through Creating Humanities Communities will lead to increases and improvements in humanities infrastructure for years to come, even beyond the initial activities funded by these grants.

Up to $10,000 per student is available to support innovative/collaborative scholarship which the student would otherwise be unable to pursue. Funding can be used for:

  • Student stipend, if the student’s current funding source would not allow the alternative project(s)
