Stanton Foundation Course Development Grants

The Stanton Foundation has created a program to provide grants of up to $50,000 for tenured and tenure-track faculty to develop new Applied History courses for undergraduates or first-year graduate students. The Foundation hopes to select at least 10 courses for funding to be taught in the 2018-2019 academic year.

The Foundation’s purpose in promoting the development and teaching of such courses is to give students better tools for thinking about important policy issues in their roles as citizens. Business education demonstrates that a rich collection of cases on a topic can serve as a starting point for good decision making and leadership in business. The Foundation believes that a similar familiarity with the historical record on major issues and the ability to use the case method may be equally useful in making citizens more informed consumers of news and more responsible decision makers.

Applications are due by March 15, 2018 for grants that will support the development of courses to be taught in the 2018-2019 academic year. Successful applicants will be notified as promptly as possible, but in no case later than April 16, 2018. For more information, please visit or contact the Stanton Foundation at
