Support the Humanities Institute!

The Humanities Institute greatly appreciates your private support.  Donations may be used for:

  • research fellowships
  • luncheon lectures
  • workshops
  • study groups
  • conferences
  • special events

As UConn’s premier institute for research in the humanities at which fellowships and lectures are highly competitive and awarded only to outstanding projects, private support helps sustain excellence across the humanities.

A gift to the Humanities Institute may be given in several ways: to our existing fund (see below), through the creation of a new fund to support current activities, or through an endowment to support programs in the future.

For more information about giving to the Humanities Institute, contact a CLAS development officer or the Director of the Institute, Michael P. Lynch,, or 860-486-9059.

You may donate online using the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences’ secure online giving form. Check the “Other gift designation” box, and enter “22250: Humanities Excellence” in the Gift Designation field.
