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:  While the President's full FY18 budget request proposes elimination of funding for NEH, NEA, and IMLS, the three organizations are operating normally at present. See statements from the NEH; the NEA; and                                                 the IMLS for more information. Congress is now beginning to work on its                                                     FY18 appropriations process.

Applications should propose research that will advance solutions to climate change and its impact. Solutions may include both preparedness and mitigation and strong consideration will be given to projects that demonstrate a clear pathway to application, as well as riskier proposals with the potential to be transformative over time.

Humanities Connections projects have two core features:
  1. Faculty from at least two separate departments or schools at a single institution must collaborate to devise new curricular arrangements; and
  2. Projects must include provisions for high-impact student engagement activities that relate directly to the topic(s) of the linked courses. These activities could include individual or collaborative undergraduate research projects; opportunities for civic engagement; or a structured experience with community-based, project-based, or site-based learning. Community organizations and cultural institutions can play key roles in this regard.
