Women and Minority Artists and Scholars Lecture Series is now accepting applications for 2019-20 academic year

From: Associate Provost for the Arts

The Women and Minority Artists and Scholars Lecture Series is designed to promote the number and diversity of scholarly voices and artistic expressions from underrepresented groups by providing funding assistance for Virginia Tech departments and other units.

With support from Arts@VirginiaTech and the university’s Office of the Provost, the program provides funds to support events and experiences that provide students with opportunities to interact with guest lecturers or artists to increase their access to successful women and minority role models.

Giving voice to minority and women’s perspectives, these lectures provide an inclusive and interactive space for scholarly exploration and support a collaborative environment for attendees. Invited speakers may be from any discipline, gender, race, or ethnicity. Invitations to speakers whose scholarship incorporates race, gender, class, or international perspectives are especially encouraged. Those presentations that would appeal to a wider audience will be given preference.

Events and presentations begin in the fall of 2019 and continue through the spring.

Applications are due by Wednesday, Sept. 18.
