If you have a great faculty advisor, or program staff member, reward them for their hard work by nominating them for a Ver Steeg Award. They will be formally recognized at TGS’s Awards and Recognition dinner, and with a small monetary award. The deadline for the 2013-14 academic year is Friday, May 9.
Named for Clarence Ver Steeg, former Northwestern University Professor in History and Dean of The Graduate School from 1975 to 1986, this award recognizes one outstanding non-faculty staff person and two Graduate Faculty members each year for excellence in work with graduate students in The Graduate School.

Preservation and Access Research and Development grants support projects that address major challenges in preserving or providing access to humanities collections and resources. These challenges include the need to find better ways to preserve materials of critical importance to the nation’s cultural heritage—from fragile artifacts and manuscripts to analog recordings and digital assets subject to technological obsolescence—and to develop advanced modes of searching, discovering, and using such materials.
Applicants should define a specific problem, devise procedures and potential solutions, and explain how they would evaluate their projects and disseminate their findings.
