Special Collections Research Center Accepting Proposals for 2020 Faculty Fellows Program
The Special Collections Research Center (SCRC) at Syracuse University Libraries is now accepting proposals for two faculty fellows who would like to provide students with an opportunity to handle, analyze and interpret SCRC’s primary source materials in their classes.
The SCRC Faculty Fellows Program supports innovative curriculum development and fosters new ideas about how to transform the role of special collections in university instruction. Each fellow selected will receive a $5,000 payment, hands-on introduction to the collections and ongoing classroom support throughout the semester. Proposal applications for the development or revision of a 3-credit course to be taught in the Fall 2020 or Spring 2021 semester from any discipline on campus are currently being accepted now through March 20, 2020.
The original funding for the SCRC Faculty Fellows Program was made possible through the generosity of the Gladys Krieble Delmas Foundation, which promotes the advancement and perpetuation of humanistic inquiry and artistic creativity by encouraging excellence in scholarship and in the performing arts, and by supporting research libraries and other institutions that transmit our cultural heritage.
