Internal Funding Opportunities
The Center for Excellence in the Arts and Humanities (CEAH) in combination with the Office of the Vice President for Research and Economic Development (VPR/ED) sponsors opportunities for faculty to pursue internally-funded research.
Full descriptions of these competitive research funding opportunities may be found by following the links provided below.
CEAH Sponsored Internal Funding
Research Grant for Assistant and Associate Professors
Anticipated March 19, 2012
CEAH provides grants up to $5,000 to assistant and associate professors for research and creative activity in the arts and humanities. The intent of the grants is to contribute to the professional development of faculty by funding projects with research-related outcomes in humanistic scholarship, design, and creative artistic production.
Seed Grants for Collaborative Work
Due August 29, 2011
CEAH provides seed grants in the range of $20,000 to $30,000 for collaborative, interdisciplinary research and/or artistic production. These grants are created to support efforts that bring together existing strengths and capabilities to create programs that have the potential to compete nationally for significant recognition. Supported projects bring together teams of two or more faculty researchers to experiment and assume some risk in pursuing arts and humanities scholarship that cuts across normative academic boundaries. It is expected that funded research teams will pursue external funding to help insure the long-term sustainability of their projects.
Small Grant Support for Senior Faculty
Due August 29, 2011 and March 19, 2012
CEAH provides grants ranging from $500-$1,000 to Senior Faculty to supplement research and creative activity in the arts and humanities. These grants provide modest assistance for projects that have the potential for future growth or that require a small investment of funds for completion. The intent of these grants is to supplement external funds, or to assist projects not yet ready to compete for external funds.
