Seed Money in the Arts and Humanities

These small grants support research and creative activity in the arts and humanities. 

  • Up to $5,000 for long-term projects

Arts and Humanities Seed Funding

The Office of the Vice President for Research and Economic Development (OVPRED), in partnership with the Humanities Institute (HI), announces the availability of $50,000 in seed money for research and creative activity in the arts and humanities.

This program will provide awards of up to $5,000 for long-term projects, with the goal of generating applications for outside funding within two years of the start of funding. Priority will be given to projects at the early or middle stages of completion, to allow time to secure external funding.

While the Humanities Institute seeks to distribute financial support as widely as possible, one may hold a Seed Money award and an HI Faculty Fellowship at the same time.
