Mellon 8 Faculty Partnerships and Seminars

Amherst faculty members may apply for stipends to support scholarly or artistic collaborations or mentoring relationships with colleagues from beyond the Five Colleges. Faculty Partnerships will support pairs of faculty across institutions (including R1 institutions) who wish to pursue particular goals in research, artistic creation, or teaching. Faculty partners might critique one another’s scholarly or artistic work, pursue a new area together, or share curricular ideas. Partnerships may also center on professional mentoring and career guidance.
