About the CUNY Adjunct Incubator Grants

The Center for the Humanities CUNY Adjunct Incubator is a framework for supporting and highlighting the significant work of adjuncts teaching in the humanities and humanities-related social sciences across CUNY. The goal of the CUNY Adjunct Incubator is to expand academic and cultural networks and provide valuable opportunities for professional and intellectual development. Providing professional, social, logistical, and financial support for the production and circulation of knowledge by CUNY adjuncts, this platform will promote the crucial work of adjuncts.  

We are offering two types of grants:  

Who is Eligible: Current adjuncts at any CUNY College  

Application Deadline: Monday, March 12th, 2018.  

Selection Process: Recipients will be decided by an interdisciplinary committee.  

Application Process: Please send a one-page letter of interest describing your research or public project, academic and/or professional background, and methodological tool-kit. Please be sure to let us know your discipline(s), your current departmental affiliation as an adjunct at a CUNY senior or community college, and one contact who we can reach out to should your proposal be selected. If your project is public in nature, please describe past relevant experience and communities engaged. In addition to the letter of interest, please email a CV and a brief, budgetary outline to ch@gc.cuny.edu by Monday, March 12th, 2018.  

Expectations: You will be in charge of managing your research or project, from conception to completion. The Center for the Humanities will provide logistical, and media support if you are producing a public-facing project. We request a one-page, narrative report on research progress and impact by December 1, 2018. We will also ask you to fill out a short survey on your experience so that we can serve this community better in the Adjunct Incubator’s next iteration. Finally, you will be invited to think about sharing your work with wider publics, as part of the Center’s mission to support public facing, interdisciplinary scholarship. And we welcome proposals for public panels in fall 2018 stemming from your project and/or writing for our blog.
