The Center for the Humanities both initiates projects and respond to proposals by individual Drake faculty or groups of faculty that promise to draw upon and contribute to scholarship and pedagogy in the humanities. Faculty are encouraged to develop proposals that represent a broad range of academic experiences and draw upon the full range of available resources. The Center funds proposals for individual research projects, visiting scholars and colloquia, workshops, institutional collaborations, and symposia and conferences, in addition to funding awards including several Endowed Professorships, the Truman Scholarship to a junior-level student, and several awards to students in the name of emeriti faculty.
