Scholarly Intersection Grant (SIG)


Academic Year 2023/2024

The goal of the CLA Scholarly Intersections Program is to facilitate events and presenters that enhance the intellectual life of the College and to provide opportunities for scholarly exchange across departments and disciplinary boundaries. Scholarly Intersections events must therefore be co-organized by faculty from at least two CLA departments and may include collaborations with faculty from other campus entities, centers, and colleges.
