The University of Arkansas Humanities Center is happy to announce their spring funding competitions to help support humanities research and its distribution. All University of Arkansas faculty working with humanities content are encouraged to apply. 

The due date for all competitions is Monday, March 1. Check out the UAHC website funding tab for full proposal information for the below competitions.

Consultant Funds:

Five grants of up to $1,000 each are available for University of Arkansas to engage a consultant to help with grant writing, book proposals, or other field specific proposals for humanities research.

Outreach Incentive Funds:

Two grants of up to $2,500 are available for University of Arkansas faculty to support humanities-focused, community-based events for the campus or the region. These events should include humanities and interdisciplinary content and focus on outreach to a broad constituency.

Publishing Subvention Grants:

The publishing subvention grant competition has been extended. Two awards of up to $2,000 each are still available for distribution.

These funds can be used to defray production costs associated with humanities research publications or scholarly products including obtaining publication rights for art works, purchase of high-resolution visuals, translation costs, creation of maps by a third party, design of graphs or charts by a third party, or other field specific expenses with proper justification.
