Three faculty awarded NEH fellowships, continuing record funding for humanities research

(December 14, 2018)

Three University of Notre Dame faculty members — Rebecca Tinio McKenna, Sarah McKibben and Vincent Phillip Muñoz — have been offered fellowships from the National Endowment for the Humanities in the 2018 award cycle.  

With 65 total awards, scholars in Notre Dame’s College of Arts and Letters have received more NEH fellowships than any other private university in the United States since 1999. 

“We are incredibly proud of these three faculty members who continue Notre Dame’s remarkable success in earning NEH fellowships,” said Sarah A. Mustillo, I.A. O’Shaughnessy Dean of the College of Arts and Letters. “These awards recognize the outstanding research that is happening here across a range of disciplines, the creativity and originality of our scholars as well as the excellent support provided by the Institute for Scholarship in the Liberal Arts throughout the application process.”
