Grant Opportunity: National Endowment for the Humanities Collaborative Research Grant

The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) is accepting applications for the Collaborative Research program. The purpose of this program is to support groups of two or more scholars seeking to increase humanistic knowledge through convenings, research, manuscript preparation for collaborative publications, and the creation of scholarly digital projects. The collaborative work can take place within a single field of study or across disciplines. Partnerships with researchers from the natural and social sciences are encouraged, but all collaborative projects must address significant humanities questions.

The Collaborative Research program comprises four funding categories that support different types of collaborative projects and projects at different stages of development: Planning International Collaboration, Conference, Manuscript Preparation, and Scholarly Digital Projects. Proposed projects must aim to result in tangible and sustainable outcomes, for example, co-authored or multi-authored books; born-digital publications; themed issues of peer-reviewed journals; a series of peer-reviewed articles; and open-access scholarly digital resources. All project outcomes must incorporate interpretive work and collaboration to address significant humanities research questions.

Funding range:
Planning International Collaboration: up to $25,000
Conference: up to $100,000
Manuscript Preparation: up to $250,000
Scholarly Digital Projects: up to $250,000

Deadline: December 2, 2020
