Seed grant proposals for Humanities Without Walls’ Grand Research Challenge due April 30

Humanities Without Walls (HWW), the Center for the Advancement of the Humanities and the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs are offering a seed grant opportunity for faculty interested in applying for the HWW Consortium’s Grand Research Challenge grants.  

The HWW principal investigator team is seeking proposals from tenure line faculty in the humanities or humanistic social sciences to support proposal development in summer 2021. Awardees will receive up to $2,500 (depending on the number of submissions) and will be asked to participate in Marquette’s new “Humanities Collaboratory” project, which seeks to build an advisory support team as faculty develop grant proposals this summer.  

Seed grant proposals are due to on Friday, April 30, by 11:59 p.m. Grant awardees will be notified of funding decisions by Monday, May 17.

Full applications to HWW’s Grand Research Challenge initiative, which will fund interdisciplinary humanities projects up to $150,000, are due to HWW by Monday, November 15. Applying for the Grand Research Grants is not contingent upon receipt of a seed grant.
