Scholarly Subvention Grant

Subvention Grants (up to $1500) can provide partial support toward expenses incurred in the publication of scholarly and creative works (including indexing, proofreading, copy editing, and permissions) and the installation of art exhibits.

Eligibility: All full time Wilkinson College faculty members may apply. Applications are accepted throughout the year.

Application Process:

Complete the Subvention Grant online application. Provide a clear and concise description of the work for which you request funding, its role in your larger research agenda or creative plan, and why subvention is needed.

Upload a single PDF with external materials that document your arrangements with the entity to which subvention would be paid. For example, a contract, letters requiring a subvention payment, an invitation to exhibit, etc.

Upload a detailed budget that includes all subvention expenses. Present your budget as an uploaded spreadsheet or as a list. Include all sources of support (e.g. from your department, publisher, exhibit host,, etc.) and all expense categories (how the funds would be spent, e.g. copyright permission, image rights, publisher subvention, CD production and distribution, artwork shipping and crating, etc.) and the amounts associated with each. Identify the specific items in your budget to which a Subvention Grant would be applied.

Material that does that does not lend itself to being uploaded may be delivered or sent via campus mail to: Sarah Gordon, Wilkinson Dean's Office, Roosevelt Hall Rm 106.
