Special COVID-19 Grants Initiative

Round #1 deadline: May 15, 2020
Round #2 deadline: June 1, 2020


Global Arts + Humanities is pleased to launch a special grants initiative to fund collaborative arts and/or humanities-based investigations, interpretations and interventions related to COVID-19. This initiative builds on the enthusiastic response to the Office of Research’s COVID-19 Seed Funding Program by targeting projects that showcase the distinctive affordances of the arts and humanities in addressing this global crisis. The current pandemic is a stark reminder that innovative and compassionate responses are essential to address the wide range of consequences for individuals, communities and nations and to craft sustainable responses.   

We invite proposals that think broadly and creatively about the cultural implications of this present moment. They might include considerations of shared vulnerabilities and global interdependences as well as structural inequities. We value the insights and methods of the arts and humanities to facilitate critical engagement with the challenges that COVID-19 has made visible and creative interventions that generate cultures of care, empathy, dissent and/or solidarity. Collectively, we hope to chart new ways to address pandemic-revealed disparities and pandemic-related research that reveal that neither crisis nor remedy exist without culture.

Faculty are invited to submit proposals for a Discovery Field School Grant. Field schools are faculty-led, interdisciplinary, experiential learning programs offered as one-credit undergraduate courses that take students   to domestic destinations to learn about the transformational value of the humanities and the arts. By immersing students in learning environments, field schools aim to close the gap between knowing and doing. This round of grants is for field schools implemented either during autumn 2020 or spring 2021.

Renewable annual grants of up to $15,000 will be awarded for field schools that further the declared purposes of the Global Arts + Humanities Discovery Theme to:

+ Deepen student cross-disciplinary engagement and experiential learning in the arts and humanities.

+ Demonstrate the value of the arts and humanities to address global concerns.

+ Empower faculty and students to contribute to society as change agents.

Proposed field schools should also respond to one or more of the GAHDT’s four Focus Areas of Im/Mobility, Livability, Community, and Methods and Practices Amplifier.
