Faculty Grant News

Barnard College presented the faculty with awards to honor their commitment to exceptional teaching and research.

In March, 2018, Barnard faculty members were awarded major research grants that support a range of research interests.

Professors Lisa Son and John Morrison are Honored with Fulbright Award and Mellon Fellowship.

In December, 2017, and January, 2018, three members of Barnard's faculty were awarded research grants.

Professor of English William Chapman Sharpe is one of three senior scholars honored with a Fulbright Visiting Professor Award—and the first from Barnard—which, according to the US-UK Fulbright Commission, is “viewed as among the most prestigious appointments in the Fulbright Scholar programme" and honors those who "have significant teaching and publication records.”

Paige West, Claire Tow Professor of Anthropology and author of Dispossession and the Environment: Rhetoric and Inequality in Papua New Guinea, was the recipient of the Columbia University Press Distinguished Book Award.
