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.

Staff members from local organizations like A Legacy of Giving, Urban Roots, Migrant Clinicians Network and Safe Place have participated in the Program.  The research of former program participant Julian Huerta, Director of Foundation Communities, was also featured in a 2007 issue of the Chronicle of Philanthropy. Read here to learn more about the benefits of participating in the Community Sabbatical Research Leave Program. A call for applications will be posted after Labor Day.

For more information, please contact the Humanities Institute at (512) 471-9056 or information@humanitiesinstitute.utexas.edu.
