NEWS & RESOURCES
The FEDERAL FUNDING CLIMATE & UPDATES

The Research Development team will continue to monitor news from Washington regarding Federal research funding. We will share confirmed, substantive information that affects funding for the arts, humanities, and humanistic social sciences. Please send questions, concerns, or news about changes to your current funding to  Jen Corby.

UPDATE: Congress voted to appropriate a $3M increase in FY18 funds for NEH and NEA and a $9M increase for IMLS over FY17 funding levels. The President's FY19 budget request has again called for the elimination of these agencies; however, they continue to have strong Congressional support. See statements from the NEH; the NEA; and the IMLS for more information.

Rothenberg
Deadline: February 22, 2019
Award Amount: up to $7,500

This fund is intended to support new and ongoing research projects by Harvard ladder faculty in the humanities, both individual and collaborative projects. Costs associated with publication or any related forms of dissemination are also eligible. Proposals might include (but are by no means limited to) research for books, articles, performances, films, installations, translations, web-based projects, scholarly editions, databases, and any other form of scholarly writing or creative work. Proposals may (but need not) be interdisciplinary or cross-cultural in character. Expenses associated with travel to collections and archives, as well as travel to conferences, symposia, seminars, film festivals, and other scholarly gatherings are eligible. Expenses to pay research assistants are permitted, although faculty are asked to hire Harvard undergraduates or graduate students as research assistants. The committee hopes that it can fund proposals across all these categories, but if forced to choose, it will give priority to funding travel to do research over travel to present findings.


FoundationsBehavior
Deadline: last day of February, May, August, and November
Award Amount: $40,000 for ladder faculty; $5,000 for doctoral students and postdocs

The FHBI provides seed grants to support transformative research in the social and behavioral sciences. Successful proposals will be those that promise to advance understanding of the social, institutional and biological mechanisms shaping human beliefs and behavior. Funds will be used to support interdisciplinary social science research projects based on innovative experimental or observational designs that make use of sophisticated quantitative methods. The fund also supports seminars, conferences, and other research-related activities. Harvard  full time doctoral students, post-doctoral fellows, and ladder faculty are eligible to apply.



HarvardDataScienceInitiative
Special Projects Fund
Deadline: Rolling
Award Amount: up to $5,000

The Harvard Data Science Initiative Faculty Special Projects Fund is intended to support one-time data science opportunities for which other funding is not readily available. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis, and funding will be awarded throughout the year until available funding is exhausted. Applicants may request funding of up to $5,000 to support research, community-building, outreach, and educational activities.

The HDSI welcomes applications from all fields of scholarship.  



HarvardGlobalInstitute
Grants
Letter of Interest Deadline: December 19, 2018
Full Proposal Deadline (if invited): April 17, 2019
Award Amount for Small Grants: $50,000-$100,000 annually for 1-2 years
Award Amount for Large Grants: $500,000-$1M annually for 1-2 years
 
In the 2019-20 academic year, HGI will fund research projects in China and India that have the potential for impact both locally and globally. Project activities are not limited to the Harvard campus but also include work that happens in China and/or India. Faculty conducting research in China have access to space at the  Harvard Center Shanghai , and HGI encourages project teams to make use of the Center as a convening site. Faculty from across the Schools who are already working on China and/or India-related topics, as well as those who wish to begin doing so, are invited to apply for funding by submitting preliminary expressions of interest (EOIs).
 
Funding will be provided at two levels:
  • Large grants will support multi-faculty, cross-school, cross-discipline, integrative projects on problems or issues of global relevance that build on existing research and include significant collaboration with scholars in China. The goal is to help innovative research "scale up" and "scale out." There should thus be a substantial track record of prior work upon which a more ambitious project would be developed. Ideally, such a project should represent not just quantitative enhancement of previous research, but qualitative transformation of that research through heightened collaboration with colleagues in other Schools, disciplines, and countries
  • Small grants will support innovative, interdisciplinary projects that, like the large grants, focus on issues of global significance that would be unlikely to find funding from other sources. Funding is available at this level for projects with a focus on China and/or on India, or for comparative work. The majority of the funding, however, is available for projects that are related to China. 
The principal investigator must be an active tenure-track faculty member. Students and postdoctoral scholars may participate in a grant under the supervisory auspices of the faculty member who applies for an award.



LemannBrazil
Deadline: January 22, 2019
Award Amount: up to $150,000

Proposals might include performances, master classes, conferences, workshops, seminars and visits by outsiders. They may involve collaborations across departments and divisions of the FAS and the University as well as with colleagues beyond the University. Although a direct tie-in with the curriculum is not an absolute requirement, proposals that have a clear connection to existing courses, new courses, or pedagogical activities more broadly construed will be favored.

The Public Humanities Projects program supports projects that bring the ideas and insights of the humanities to life for general audiences through in-person programming. Projects must engage humanities scholarship to analyze significant themes in disciplines such as history, literature, ethics, and art history. NEH encourages projects that involve members of the public in collaboration with humanities scholars or that invite contributions from the community in the development and delivery of humanities programming. This program supports a variety of forms of audience engagement. Applications should follow the parameters set out below for one of the following three categories:
  • Community Conversations: This category supports three-month-long to two-year-long series of at least six in-person public programs that are centered on one or more significant humanities resources, such as historic artifacts, artworks, literature, musical compositions, or films. These resources should be chosen to engage a diverse public audience. The programs must be anchored through perspectives drawn from humanities disciplines. Projects may include, but are not limited to, community forums, panel symposiums, lecture series, reading and discussion programs, after-school programs, summer camps, analytical discussions on theater or musical performances, life-long learning programs, or other methods of face-to-face audience engagement or informal education. Applicants proposing programs that include public forums or question-and-answer sessions must demonstrate prior experience conducting public dialogues.
  • ExhibitionsThis category supports the creation of permanent exhibitions (on view for at least three years) and single-site temporary exhibitions (open to the public for a minimum of two months), as well as traveling exhibitions that will be available to public audiences in at least two venues in the United States (including the originating location).
  • Historic Places: This category supports long-term interpretive programs for historic sites, houses, neighborhoods, and regions that are intended to be presented to the public for at least three years. Such programs might include living history presentations, guided tours, exhibitions, and public programs.

OSP Deadline: not required for grants awarded directly to individuals
Sponsor Deadline: February 6, 2019
Award Amount: $5,000 per month for 6-12 months

The Public Scholar Program supports well-researched books in the humanities intended to reach a broad readership. Some humanities scholarship is necessarily specialized, but the humanities can also engage broad audiences in exploring subjects of general interest. Such scholarship might present a narrative history, tell the stories of important individuals, analyze significant texts, provide a synthesis of ideas, revive interest in a neglected subject, or examine the latest thinking on a topic. Books supported by this program must be grounded in humanities research and scholarship, making appropriate use of primary and/or secondary sources. They must also be written in a readily accessible style, addressing significant humanities themes in a way that will appeal to a large audience of general readers. Applications to write books directed primarily to scholars are not appropriate for this program.

NEHSustainCultural
Sustaining Cultural Heritage Collections
OSP Deadline: January 8, 2019
Sponsor Deadline: January 15, 2019
Award Amount: up to $40,000 over up to 2 years (Planning Grants); up to $350,000 over up to 5 years (Implementation Projects) 

The Sustaining Cultural Heritage Collections program helps cultural institutions meet the complex challenge of preserving large and diverse holdings of humanities materials for future generations by supporting sustainable conservation measures that mitigate deterioration, prolong the useful life of collections, and support institutional resilience: the ability to anticipate and respond to natural and man-made disasters. Effective and sustainable preservation strategies must be informed by the nature of an institution and its collections. All applicants, whether at the planning or the implementation level, should have completed the process of basic preservation planning; they should also clearly state how sustainable strategies will address priorities established in existing preservation or collection management plans. Sustainable preservation strategies can take many forms, depending on collection materials, the building envelope, and the local climate. However, interdisciplinary collaboration during planning and implementation of these strategies is essential. In SCHC projects,  such teams typically consist of consultants and members of the institution's staff and can include architects, building engineers, conservation scientists, conservators, curators, archivists, and facilities managers, among others.

NewAmericaFellows
National Fellows Program
OSP Deadline: not required for grants awarded directly to individuals
Sponsor Deadline: February 1, 2019
Award Amount: $15,000 - $30,000

New America's Fellows Program invests in thinkers--journalists, scholars, filmmakers, and public policy analysts--who offer inventive perspectives on the major challenges facing our society.
Fellows advance big ideas through research, reporting, analysis, and storytelling. The big idea can be a sweeping reframing of a familiar subject through new research or a new combination of existing research; a masterful presentation of a case study that advances our understanding of a timeless American theme or stress fracture; an innovative new media or academic project to disseminate knowledge about a shared challenge; or a bold policy prescription for moving domestic and international issues forward. The goal in the Fellows Program is to find bold, impactful thinkers and to fund them for a year, long enough so that they can make progress in writing a book, develop a series of articles, work on a documentary, or work on another project that would be accessible to a broad audience and long enough to be able to build a real community among the fellows.
