Previous Week's Announcements:

National Endowment for the Arts (8/8/2014)

  • Research: Art Works FY 2015
  • This program supports research that investigates the value and/or impact of the arts, either as individual components within the U.S. arts ecology or as they interact with each other and/or with other domains of American life.  Examples of "value"-oriented research include but are not limited to descriptive studies of arts participation and arts learning, artists and art workers, arts organizations and arts industries, and arts funders and arts volunteers. Such research may also examine the underlying conditions and vehicles for arts participation. Research on "impact" investigates direct and indirect pathways of arts participation on individual health and well-being; individual cognitive capacity, learning, and creativity; community livability; and economic prosperity.
  • Deadline: Full Proposal due October 21, 2014


National Endowment for the Humanities (8/5/2014)

  • 2015 Summer Stipend Program
  • NEH Summer Stipend fellows will be selected to receive stipends of $6,000 to support two consecutive and uninterrupted months of full-time study or research in the humanities during the summer of 2015. Summer Stipends are opportunities for individuals to pursue advanced scholarly work in the humanities. Projects may contribute to scholarly knowledge or to the general public’s understanding of the humanities. Recipients might eventually produce scholarly articles, a monograph on a specialized subject, a book on a broad topic, an archaeological site report, a translation, an edition, or other projects that are scholarly in nature.  The NEH Summer Stipends support projects that can be completed during the tenure of an award or those that are part of a long-term endeavor.
  • Deadline: Each institution is limited to nominating only two individuals, UTC will hold an internal selection process  to identify the two proposals to receive nominations if more than two faculty seek to submit Summer Stipend proposals.  Please notify OPSP at by noon on Friday, August 8th, 2014, if  interested in being nominated.  If more than 2 faculty members are interested, a one-page overview will be required by Monday, August 18th.
