GLCA New Directions Grants
Funded by a generous gift to the GLCA from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the New Directions Invitiative supports the renewal and continued professional growth of faculty in liberal arts colleges who are in “mid career.” The emphasis of the grant program is to help faculty at the critical time in their careers after they have received tenure. In particular, the New Directions Initiative rewards faculty who wish to chart a new course of research or scholarship beyond their own specific discipline. Read more on the GLCA website.
Five members of the Wabash faculty received New Directions Grants in fall 2011. Read more.
