  • Jennifer Jenkins, an SBSRI small grant recipient, received an NEH grant

    Jennifer Jenkins (English), an SBSRI grant recipient, received an NEH grant to repurpose mid-20th century educational films about Native peoples of the Southwest. Through a process of re-viewing films and recording Native narrations, this project seeks to shift the balance from external perceptions of Native peoples to the voices of the peoples represented in the films.

SBS's research support staff can help with all aspects of preparation and submission of grant proposals and fellowship applications (see below for specfics). We are already prepared to help with the external agencies that SBS faculty and students typically apply to (e.g., National Science Foundation, National Endowment for the Humanities, National Institutes of Health, Fulbrights for faculty and students). If you're interested in a funder whose funding mechanisms are new to us, give us some lead time to study the options. We can meet with individuals or groups, depending on your needs.

We can help SBS faculty, graduate students, and staff ...
