This site is designed to help CLA faculty obtain funding for research and scholarship and develop effective proposals. Grants consultants are available to assist faculty in identifying prospective internal and external grant opportunities, develop proposals, and submit applications. If you would like assistance, contact a grant consultant.
Capacity-building grants intended to help institutions and organizations secure long-term improvements in and support for their humanities programs and resources.
Challenge grants may be used to establish or enhance endowments or spend-down funds that generate expendable earnings to support ongoing program activities. Funds may also be used for one-time capital expenditures (such as construction and renovation, purchase of equipment, and acquisitions) that bring long-term benefits to the institution and to the humanities more broadly. There is a matching requirement; recipients must raise three times the amount of federal funds requested.
Application deadline: Friday, May 1, 2013
See the Challenge Grant guidelines for more information.
