Funded through a generous grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation in honor of President Emeritus W. Taylor Reveley III’s leadership on the Mellon board of directors, the Reveley Fellows program creates an abiding and renewing mechanism of structure and support for interdisciplinary work at William & Mary. Its goal is to stimulate intellectual creativity across the campus by facilitating faculty commitment to interdisciplinary teaching and research, taking greater advantage of our existing intellectual resources in novel combinations.
All full-time, continuing faculty (both tenure and non-tenure eligible) can apply in teams of two with a proposal for a joint project. If selected, these faculty pairs will collaboratively design and teach a new course and develop a concomitant research project.
Faculty selected will serve as Reveley Faculty Fellows for three years. During that time, each Fellow will receive a modest stipend ($4,000/year), collaboratively develop a new course in the first year, and teach it in the second and third.
Fellows will gather periodically to share their work with each other and the broader campus community.
