The Awards for Faculty program supports individual faculty or staff members at Hispanic-Serving Institutions, Historically Black Colleges and Universities, and Tribal Colleges and Universities pursuing research of value to humanities scholars, students, or general audiences.
Awards are designed
to be flexible, allowing applicants to define the audience, type of research, award periods, and administrative arrangements that best fit their projects.
Awards can be used for a wide range of projects that are based on humanities research.
Eligible projects include pursuing research in primary and secondary materials and producing articles, monographs, books, digital materials, archaeological site reports, translations, editions, or other scholarly resources; conducting basic research leading to the improvement of an existing undergraduate course; or conducting basic research related to the goals and interests of the institution or community.
Common to all applications—regardless of their outcome—must be humanities research supporting the goals of the project.
