The National Endowment for the Humanities is now accepting applications for Collaborative Research Grants. These grants encourage collaboration among two or more scholars in the humanities, as well as interdisciplinary projects (with a special emphasis on partnerships with researchers from the natural and social sciences). Applications must propose a project with tangible outcomes, such as publication of a book or peer-reviewed article, and all award recipients are expected to engage the larger field of the humanities with their research through conference presentations, workshops, or other means.
There are three different types of grants for which groups may apply: convening grants (1-year duration; up to $50,000; typically funds research, travel, and conferences), publication grants (1-3 year duration; up to $250,000 over multiple years; funds publication of research), and archaeology grants (same as publication grants, but aimed toward archaeological projects).
Applications are due December 5, 2018, with research projects expected to start in October 2019. To learn more about the NEH’s Collaborative Research Grants or to begin the application process, visit their website.
