Teresa Shawcross (History) has received a New Directions Fellowship from the Mellon Foundation. This very competitive $200,000 award will provide two summers' and one academic year's support, to allow her to learn Classical Arabic to further her research on the origins and implications of the Crusades around the Mediterranean.
The Art Museum has received a grant of $500,000 from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. This grant will provide both expendable and endowment support to continue the position of Coordinator of Academic Affairs, currently held by Ellen Alvord.
