UIC Institute for the Humanities


We regret no Faculty Research Award Competition will take place in 2017-2018.

The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and the Institute for the Humanities are pleased to announce the LAS Award for Faculty Research in the Humanities. These competitive awards are granted to cover costs associated with research in the humanities including but not limited to: equipment, subventions, travel to archives, conferences, or research sites, software, and technological costs associated with work in the digital humanities. Salary and teaching buyouts are not eligible expenses. The typical award will be between $1000 and $5000, but larger awards may be granted if a compelling case can be made for the necessity and impact of the additional funds. Any tenured/tenure track faculty member engaged in research in the humanities who has at least a 50% appointment within LAS is eligible to apply. Collaborative proposals are welcome.
