Description

The Stavros Niarchos Foundation Public Humanities Initiative (SNFPHI) at Columbia University supports projects that bring the ideas and insights of the humanities to life for the Greek public. The Initiative focuses on three main areas: History (e.g., preservation, oral history, archival practices, material culture); Creative Arts (e.g., performance, curation, literature); and Education (e.g., learning resources, teaching tools, educational games). 

Projects are selected initially for a 14-month term, beginning on March 1, 2020. SNFPHI provides financial support of $5000 per project for expenses (e.g., research, publications, web development) and organizes training workshops and seminars for project leaders at Columbia’s Morningside campus in New York and/or at Columbia’s Institute for Ideas and Imagination in Paris.

Eligibility and Selection Criteria

SNFPHI encourages applications from individuals and groups interested in engaging the Greek public through projects in the fields of history, creative arts, and education and in working with Columbia faculty and students. Applications from those with a record of public-facing work and those just starting to explore the public humanities are equally welcome. Preference is given to projects that:

  • Demonstrate the potential for lasting impact and long-term sustainability
  • Effectively promote public humanities in Greece
  • Stand to benefit from Columbia University resources
  • Are undertaken by or for younger generations
