Beyond the Classroom Grants
For AY 2021-2022, 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 2021.
