Funding & Awards


Hightower Speaker Funds

Each year Emory College receives funds from the Hightower endowment, which memorializes the late Robert E. Hightower Sr. This endowment provides funds to bring outstanding visiting lecturers to Emory.

The College has typically committed funds of $75,000-$100,000 annually. These include small allocations for partial funding of a single speaker to larger amounts to support conferences with several speakers.

Pedagogy Mini-Grant Request

Emory College offers mini-grants to support faculty teaching. A mini-grant should be used for an activity directly related to a class you are teaching during the semester. Anyone currently teaching in ECAS is eligible, including tenure-track faculty, lecture-track, adjunct faculty, visiting faculty and graduate students.  The request can be up to $350.
