Community Sabbatical Research Leave Program
The Community Sabbatical Research Leave Program, created and administered by the Humanities Institute, enables directors and staff members of Central Texas 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations to apply to the University for paid flexible leave in order to pursue a question or problem related to their organization and its constituency. Community Sabbatical grantees receive a UT EID for access to library and databases and a $5000 stipend. Grantees also are matched with University faculty members with related interests who provide assistance and consultation on the proposed project.
Pictured at the top right are 2015 Sabbatical Grantees, Max Rayneard of the Telling Project and Charlie Lockwood of Texas Folklife. Pictured at the bottom right are 2012 Sabbatical Grantees Rene Valdez, Andrea Marsh, Rocio Villalobos, and Eugenio del Bosque.
Since its founding in 2005, more than fifteen Central Texas organizations have received Community Sabbatical support. These organizations provide a broad range of community services, from educational oppurtunities to arts involvement. The program also provides an oppurtunity for non-profit professionals to network with each other. Staff members from local organizations such A Legacy of Giving, Urban Roots, Migrant Clinicians Network and Safe Place have participated in the Program. See our Press Page to learn more about how the Community Sabbatical Research Leave program as been featured in the press.
The Humanities Institute typically posts an RFP in the late summer/early fall preceding the sabbatical year. For more information, please contact the Humanities Institute at (512) 471-9056 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
