CREATE Grants Program: Call for Proposals

Faculty members are invited to submit proposals to the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation CREATE Grants Program. Funding for this special fall 2020 grant cycle will prioritize those museum and library projects that advance diversity, equity, and inclusion and address the ways in which the projects promote anti-racism and social justice.
