Faculty Research, Creative Activity & Scholarship Internal Funding Opportunities

Provost's Fellowship for Junior Faculty

Congratulations to Assistant Professor of History

Ashley Parcells

for winning the inaugural Provost's Fellowship!

Dr. Parcells will use her course release this coming fall to develop and submit an application for a twelve-month National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) fellowship to support the completion of her book manuscript, which is based on her doctoral dissertation. Her book project, Land of Cetshwayo’s Children: Ethnic Categories and State-Building under Apartheid, is a social and political history of the creation of legal categories of ethnicity.

Best of luck, Ashley!
