The Global Humanities Institute announces the creation of a new fund to support the work of students involved in learning about global humanities.

The <i>Global Humanities Justice Fund</i>, created by faculty in the Global Humanities Institute, seeks to energize, motivate, and support the passion of our students. We strongly believe that adopting a broadly humanistic and global perspective on the issues that confront our world today is an important means of preparing students and faculty for a complex and intricate future, with issues, concerns and opportunities that are unprecedented. We know that in order to address the needs of our societies and communities in the future, we will need a deep understanding of our global interconnectedness. The interdisciplinary work of the global humanities makes possible this deeper understanding, putting a premium on people's lives and the ways that mutual appreciation of cultural differences and similarities shape our realities.

Each year, three student scholarships of $500 each will be awarded to students who have completed the Introduction to the Global Humanities course, GHUM101. Students with a GPA of 3.0 or better apply for this scholarship by submitting a completed application along with their transcript and an essay (250 words) describing their own interest in the area of global humanities. The essay may address questions such as:

What motivates you personally to study global humanities?
Why is a humanities approach necessary to understanding others?
What do you see as the importance of global studies and humanistic approaches to global issues?
What do you see as your potential role in terms of work to impact global contexts in the future?
What historical figure ignites your interests in becoming an active global citizen?

Applications will be due <i><b>April 28, 2017</i></b>.
Questions? Please contact the GHI Director, Dr Rita Kranidis, at or on cell, 301-807-7261. For additional details, visit
