MLA Humanities Innovation Course Development Grants

July 18, 2019

The Modern Language Association awards $3,000 grants every year to support the development of courses and other educational programs that build enrollments and revitalize student interest in the humanities. In particular, we encourage proposals for courses that are interdisciplinary, that include the digital humanities, and that emphasize collaboration, public engagement, and experiential learning.

To be eligible, applicants must be current MLA members or be affiliated with an ADE or ADFL member department. Full- and part-time faculty members are eligible to apply. Individual and joint faculty proposals are welcome. For projects with multiple faculty participants, all designated project leaders must meet the eligibility requirements. 


Project Proposals


All applications must include a project proposal of no more than 2,500 words, submitted as a PDF file; please follow the structure below and number each page of the proposal. Proposals that do not adhere to these guidelines will not be considered.
