The Center for the Humanities supports research, creative activity, teaching, and engagement with the humanities through a variety of grant programs.
The Board of the Center for the Humanities meets monthly in the fall and spring terms. To ensure consideration at any given meeting, applications must be submitted one week in advance of the meeting date. Visit the webpages for specific grants to find dates and deadlines for upcoming terms. In general, requests for retroactive funding will not be considered. However, in the highly unusual situation that an expense arises and must be paid before the deadline for one of the monthly meetings, faculty may inquire with the Director regarding extenuating circumstances. Note that faculty may request up to $500 from the Director's discretionary budget for expenses that arise during the summer and must be paid before the deadline for the first meeting of the fall term.
