FIVE COLLEGE LECTURE FUNDING

The Five College Lecture Fund constitutes a supplemental source of support for inter-institutional groups bringing programming to the Valley (lectures, symposia, performances, cultural fairs, small exhibitions, etc.). Normally, grants are made for special “one-time” events and not events repeated annually or as part of an ongoing series. Projects supported through the Lecture Fund must include components that are free and open to the public. Projects including engagement with elementary and secondary schools are particularly welcome and may qualify for supplemental funding, when appropriate.

THE KATHARINE ASHER ENGEL LECTURE

The Katharine Asher Engel Lectureship at Smith College was established in 1958 by the National Council of Jewish Women to honor the memory of Mrs. Engel, its onetime president, a graduate of Smith College, 1920. Mrs. Engel's life was one of generous participation in educational, civic, religious and welfare activities. In endowing the lectureship, the council hoped to "create a bond between a remarkable woman, her college, and the organization to which she was devoted." Under the terms of the grant, the holder of the annual lectureship must be a member of the Smith College faculty who has made an outstanding contribution to knowledge in his or her field. A list of the Engel lecturers can be found here.

ENDOWED LECTURE FUNDS

There are eleven endowed lecture funds, all varying in the restrictions imposed by the terms of the endowment. These funds are described here.
