Application for HRI Research Funding

December 2014 Competition
This funding is intended to provide research awards to Humanities Research Institute (HRI) Associates, in order to support particular projects, or parts of projects, that relate to the Associate's larger research plan, enterprise or undertaking. Examples of project-based work that would be eligible for these awards might include: funds needed for the completion of a book (such as costs associated with illustrations; support for specific archival projects; acquisition of project-specific software; the employment of a research assistant; funds to be used for the production of a catalogue or index; or the purchase of specific project-related equipment). The HRI does not fund the purchase of computers or books. Travel for the sole purpose of conference participation is not funded. Grants will be awarded to a maximum of $3000 for assistance during a 12 month period immediately following the grant's receipt. Requests for smaller amounts of funding are welcome as well. Recipients are required to submit a short report to the HRI at the completion of the project, describing the work accomplished as a result of having received the award.

HRI funds that have not been spent within twelve months of the grant's receipt (or another specified date, as stated when the award is announced to the recipient) will be reclaimed by the HRI for redistribution during the next grant period. An extension of six months may be granted by the HRI Advisory Board upon application explaining extenuating circumstances that have had an impact on the completion of the project.
