Proposal requirements

  • This grant is intended to support a broad range of research and creative activity in the arts and humanities as well as qualitative projects in the social sciences.
  • All grants are intended for support of research and creative activity, and not for support of teaching and/or service activities. Scholarship of teaching may be supported under this grant program if it has strong and clearly articulated research outcomes.
  • Projects will be limited to 12 months in duration.
  • Funds will not be granted for a project currently supported by another internal funding mechanism unless a case is made in justifying the complementary funding.
  • With the exception of the IAHI Summer Academy grant, an investigator may not serve as PI on more than one IAHI grant proposal in a given year.
  • A grant recipient may apply and receive this grant no sooner than six months after the completion of a previous Collaboration Grant.
  • Applications will be judged on the merit of the proposed research or creative activity, qualifications of the applicant, significance of the research to the field, the potential for additional external funding, and the project’s importance to the applicant’s future research plans.
  • Grant programs do not provide retroactive funding.
