Arts & Humanities Process Grant Proposal

As part of the Arts & Humanities Initiative, competitions will be held in Spring and Fall 2024 to support faculty’s needs for research, scholarship and creative activity.

Spring recipients will be expected to share a 3-minute flash talk of the work supported by the grant at the Spring Showcase event on April 10th, 2024. Fall recipients will share a 3-minute flash talk during an event in Fall 2024. The grants are intended to support smaller items needed such as: materials, printing, tools, software, permissions, services (transcription or translation), event support, marketing, participant stipends, etc. Travel is not an eligible expense. Grants are open to all faculty engaged in work based in the Arts & Humanities, regardless of track, campus, or unit. We especially encourage faculty of color, queer, trans, gender non-binary, working-class and other underrepresented individuals to apply.

To apply, complete the proposal submission form below by September 20th for Fall awards. The proposal form will become available April 1.

  • The proposal must include:
    • A description of the project (500 words or fewer).
      • Background
      • Significance
      • Context (e.g., Is the proposed work part of a larger ongoing project; Is the proposed work multidisciplinary; etc.)
    • Budget: Individuals may apply for $500–$2,500, depending on need. Projects in their initial phases are highly encouraged but we welcome projects in any phase. We will award up to a total of $5,000 in Spring 2024 and $5,000 in Fall 2024.
