Grant of the Week: Humanities Exposed

The Center for Humanities at the University of Wisconsin-Madison will once again be accepting applications from UW Graduate Students for their Humanities Exposed (HEX) Grants.

According to their web site, "Drawing its inspiration from the Wisconsin Idea, HEX aims to change the culture of graduate education by providing support to humanists and humanities departments in their efforts to become citizens of the wider community."

Recipients represent "a cross-section of disciplines and frames of reference, use their research to engage diverse members of the public in related kinds of exploration, writing and discussion of ideas. HEX projects identify community needs and form sustainable, ongoing relationships to address those needs" (http://www.humanities.wisc.edu/).
