New Frontiers in the Arts and Humanities

Past Successful Proposals

Examples of successful New Frontiers applications are posted here as a resource for potential grant applicants. The proposals below are drawn from two recent years of the program (2012-13 and 2013-14). All of these proposed projects were funded, and each was one of the highest-ranked applications in its year. Clicking on a proposal title on the list will take you to the proposal and to the reviews by members of the New Frontiers Review Committee. The principal investigators have given permission to have their proposals and reviews posted. Only the project descriptions, budget narratives, and reviews are included. Reviewers have been kept anonymous in accordance with university policy.

There are two examples of New Frontiers Exploratory Travel Fellowship proposals included here which do not include budget justifications. Budget justifications were not required when these proposals were submitted. As of July 2013, budget justifications are required for Exploratory travel Fellowships.
