Application deadline Oct. 24 for humanities funding opportunity

October 19, 2011

The Seed Grant program, offered by the Institute for Humanities Research, provides support for projects that advance the transdisciplinary, collaborative, and issue-focused mission of the Institute and are sufficiently developed to be competitive for national grants.

The deadline for submitting seed grant applications to the IHR is 11:59 p.m., Oct. 24.

Seed grant funds are available for up to $12,000 for collaborative teams or $7,500 for individual researchers, and may be requested for the purpose of conducting research and developing proposals for submission to external funding agencies. 

It is expected that within a year of support for planning and research, faculty will enhance the competitive nature of their grant proposals.

Every year the IHR offers dozens of collaborative, interdisciplinary research funding and advancement opportunities.

The Institute for Humanities Research in ASU’s College of Liberal Arts and Sciences was established in 2005. It has taken the lead in promoting excellence and innovation in humanities scholarship by contributing to scholarly research that addresses socially significant issues and engaging the community.
