Meet emerging needs
At UChicago, humanities students and faculty members are imaginative and ambitious; they freely conceive bold ideas and projects that require funding to give them formal shape. The University must provide our scholars with the resources they need to realize their goals. To recruit top talent and advance the research of its most accomplished faculty members, the division will create a Dean’s Discretionary Research Endowment. Strategically awarded, flexible grants from this fund will support publications, postdoctoral opportunities, conferences, travel, specialized infrastructure, visiting collaborators, and other emerging needs.
