2024 DaVinci Fellowship

The mission of The DaVinci Institute is to promote a statewide creativity renaissance through lectures, workshops, professional development, research and advocacy.

The DaVinci Institute Board of Directors requests nominations for the DaVinci Fellowship.  This Fellowship funds creative projects, broadly defined, among Oklahoma’s higher education faculty.  Acting on the premise that creative thought and insight are fundamental components of extraordinary scholarship, invention, teaching, and performance across academic disciplines, the DaVinci Institute seeks nominees whose proposals for future projects reflect a high degree of innovation and creativity.  Each member institution may nominate up to two faculty members per year. Nominations require the signature of a representative of The Office of The Provost or Academic Vice President.

The recipients of this honor will receive a DaVinci “Vitruvian Man” medal and a $1000 grant they may apply to any aspect of completing the proposed project.

DaVinci Fellows will be asked to provide a brief presentation about the completed project to the board of directors approximately one year after receiving funding.  The board reserves the right to determine the time, date, and location of this presentation in consultation with each Fellow.

The deadline for applications is February 9, 2024.
