Supporting the Work of the Faculty with Internal Funding and Outside Grants

Amherst offers internal funding and is committed to supporting the Faculty’s efforts to pursue external funding to support teaching, scholarship, and creative work.  Grants and fellowships provide opportunities to strengthen faculty members’ individual research programs and those of the college as a whole. To support scholarly inquiry and the expansion of knowledge, furthering the mission of the college in research, teaching, and public service, I encourage colleagues to apply for internal funding and to seek external funds.
