Calls for Proposals:
The Montello Foundation is accepting applications for its summer 2023 artist residency in northeastern Nevada now through January 22, 2023. The Montello Foundation is dedicated to supporting artists who foster our understanding of nature, its fragility, and our need to protect it. The two-week artist retreat at the Montello Foundation is meant to be a retreat from the urban environment, potentially providing residents with a new perspective for their work and giving them space and time for undisturbed experimentation and reflection.
Quoting from the foundation’s website:
“The idea behind the retreat is that you are in this amazing desert landscape by yourself. It’s all yours, and you are part of all what is around you.
There is no direct interaction with other humans, no staff or other artists, you don’t have to be social or not, decide whether you go to your room or chat all night. You focus on being social using your art you work on while you are there, or do sketches to work on it afterwards, or you can just relax from working and spend two weeks in the hammock. (We are sure you will have at least one great thought and will act upon it afterwards.)
Your social responsibility is with the audience of your work, not the immediate humans around you. What’s important is to get the message out: Nature is a fragile thing and we have to take care of it.”
Visual artists and curators, writers, composers and performing artists are all eligible to apply.
Please note that there is no fee for artists to stay at the retreat, but artists are responsible for their travel expenses and for their meals.
The college’s new F&A/Indirect cost rates are in effect (retroactive to July 1, 2022). The new rates can be found here.

Did you know?
- The National Science Foundation has two funding opportunities that are designed to support associate professors and full professors who are seeking to enhance or change their research activity: the Mid-Career Advancement Program and the Transitions to Excellence in Molecular and Cellular Biosciences Research Program.The Mid-Career Advancement Program is an NSF-wide program designed for PIs (primarily associate professors as well as full professors at primarily undergraduate institutions (Hey, that’s us!)), whose administrative and/or teaching duties have significantly hindered their research efforts. The program provides funds to release faculty from some of their non-research duties, allowing them to pursue collaborations to gain new skills or resources and substantially enhance their research trajectory. Applications for this program are accepted February 01 – March 01, 2023, and annually thereafter.
The Transitions to Excellence in Molecular and Cellular Biosciences Research Program is an MCB program designed for PIs (both associate and full professors) who have made productive contributions to a research area, but now would like to change or expand their research direction by acquiring new research or data analytic skills. Proposals for this program are accepted at any time.
- National Endowment for the Humanities: Digital Humanities Advancement Grants: The Digital Humanities Advancement Grants program (DHAG) supports innovative, experimental, and/or computationally challenging digital projects, leading to work that can scale to enhance scholarly research, teaching, and public programming in the humanities.
