CFP: The Humanities Institute Faculty Research and Publication Grant Call 2022-2023


Call for Proposals

Deadline: April 25, 2022

The Humanities Institute Faculty Research and Publication Grant is a new fund that directly supports Humanities faculty in two categories:

    1. Individual Research:  Awards are available to support individual Humanities faculty research. Examples of eligible expenses include graduate or undergraduate student research assistance, travel expenses, research materials (including books), research equipment, research-related costs, or seed funding. Note that regular office supplies, including laptops or other equipment met by faculty’s standard computer package, are not considered eligible expenses. 
    2. Publication Assistance: Awards are available to support publication costs, subventions, and manuscript workshops.

Individual Research: $250-$2,500
Publication Assistance: up to $5,000
Funds will be transferred to a faculty member’s individual research account.

Number of Awards: 

Applicants must be faculty in the Humanities Division and members of the UCSC Senate. In order to be considered for this award, applicants must have applied for a UC Santa Cruz Committee on Research (COR) grant for the same project in the same academic year.
