Beyond the Classroom Grants

For AY 2022-2023, CLCS will support ten Beyond the Classroom speakers with honoraria capped at $250. These speakers will “visit” face-to-face ENGL undergraduate courses via Zoom or other appropriate video platforms. Instructors imagining a more ambitious program may instead apply for an Academic Programming Grant.

Applicant Eligibility: Any instructor in the Department of English at the University of Maryland may apply. Priority will be given to projects and/or speakers that support the English studies curriculum.

Speaker Eligibility: Please note that funds are not available for “visits” by individuals within the University of Maryland System (we cannot compensate employees on payroll in the UMS).

Application and deadline: Submit your request here. For best consideration for the fall semester, submit your request by 15 September 2022. For best consideration for the spring semester, submit your request by 7 February 2023.
