Grant brings opportunities for new professionals and tenured faculty

February 11, 2008

(Portland, Ore.)—In a new program to bring fresh perspectives and new voices to campus, Lewis & Clark College will welcome the assistance of postdoctoral fellows over the course of the next few years, thanks to a grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

Beginning Fall 2008, the $450,000 grant will support two postdoctoral fellowships in the humanities per year. The fellows will strengthen course offerings and interact with the College’s faculty in important areas of scholarly research.

“The Mellon grant is a win-win proposition for Lewis & Clark,” said Julio de Paula, dean of the College of Arts and Sciences. “The fellowships will bring to Lewis & Clark a cohort of promising teachers just embarking on their careers. They will inject additional ideas and perspectives into our curriculum. And the research agendas of our faculty will advance significantly as a result of interactions with these young scholars.”
