Southwest and Border Cultures Institue
Southwest and Border Cultures Institute Forms- 2017

Application submission deadline: 11:59 PM, Thursday, May 4th, 2017.

The Southwest and Border Cultures Institute (SBCI) was founded in November 1998 upon receipt of a Challenge Grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities. The NEH award of $450,000 was matched by $1.35 million in non-federal dollars to create a permanent endowment of $1.8 million dollars. The purpose of the SBCI is to enable acquisitions by the University Library and Museum, fund faculty and graduate student research on Southwestern and U.S.-Mexico Border issues in the humanities, and to  fund on- and off-campus public programs that relate to humanities issues in the Southwest and U.S. –Mexico Border region.

The SBCI began funding activities in 2001. The program is administered by an Administrative Council, with representatives from the eligible departments of Anthropology, English, History, Languages, and Linguistics and from the University Museum and University Library. Faculty and students from other departments may apply for SBCI funding as long as their project is a humanities project.
