Dear Faculty Colleagues:   

We are happy to announce a new Faculty Foundation grant opportunity. The Evergreen State College Foundation and the Academic Deans are making available an opportunity to apply for a special Faculty Foundation Oral History Project Grant for the academic year 2021-22.   

The Evergreen Oral History Project has been under way for the last several years, and to date has collected some sixty interviews from faculty, staff and administrators. These interviews have been transcribed and archived. The collection includes people’s candid memories of work and life at the College, of its innovative approaches to teaching and learning, and of crucial challenges, issues, events, and transformations that Evergreen has experienced in its first fifty years.  

This Faculty Foundation Oral History Project Grant is meant to support the publication of materials from these archives. Proposals for possible publication platforms is open, but could include book draft, podcasts, vignettes, and/or other possible outcomes. Grant recipients will work with Oral History interview transcripts and other supporting historical documents 

Two grants are available for a half-time teaching reduction for two quarters in 2021-2022 or as a full-time leave for one quarter, and compensation at the faculty’s regular salary rate. Any faculty currently employed by the college (including adjuncts) are eligible to apply. Applicants should indicate a preference for half- or full-time reduction, and which quarters would be preferred, to be negotiated with Curriculum Team.   

How to apply 

Faculty need to complete all sections of the application form.  

The grant application proposal consists of a 500 word proposal describing interest, relevant experience and skills, a summary of the plan for carrying this project forward, and a brief timeline of proposed work. The grant application proposals will be viewed by the panel reviewing other faculty grants this year.  

  • Deadline: Please submit your application  by 5:00 pm on December 7, 2020.    
  • Timeline: We anticipate making final decisions on the Oral History Project grants by early winter quarter.
