Call for Applications: Climate Humanities Course Development Grants, Columbia University

August 15, 2022


All tenure-track or tenured faculty, lecturers in discipline, practice faculty, regular adjuncts, and postdoctoral fellows at Columbia University are invited to apply.


The maximum award is $2,500. The award cannot be used for teaching compensation. Funds can be used for materials (books, supplies), research or research assistance, course costs (speaker fees), or other needs. 


The Climate Humanities Initiative at Columbia University is seeking proposals for new undergraduate courses in climate humanities to be taught during the 2022-23 or 2023-24 academic years. Co-taught courses and collaborations between and across departments, divisions, and schools are particularly welcome. 

Columbia’s undergraduate student body has displayed a passionate interest in integrating this urgent topic into their studies in new ways, without regard to disciplinary boundaries. This grant program aims to help meet that need, and to enable faculty with an interest in the climate crisis to explore novel methods for integrating it into their teaching and research.
