Description: The Collaborative Research program aims to advance humanistic knowledge by supporting sustained collaboration between two or more scholars. Collaborators may be drawn from one or more institutions. The program allows projects that propose research in a single field of study, as well as interdisciplinary work. Projects that include partnerships with researchers from the natural and social sciences are encouraged but must employ a humanistic research agenda. The program includes four project categories: Planning International Collaboration, Conference, Manuscript Preparation, and Scholarly Digital Projects. The categories support different project types or stages and have different performance periods and award ceilings. Applicants must specify only one project category for support. See website for more info.

Award: Up to $250,000

Eligibility: Open to organizations. International collaboration encouraged, but project director must be based at a U.S. institution, and project teams must include an equitable balance of scholars based at U.S. institutions and scholars based at non-U.S. institutions. Proposed projects must aim to result in tangible and sustainable outcomes, such as co-authored or multi-authored books; digital publications; themed issues of peer-reviewed journals; or open-access scholarly digital resources. All project outcomes must incorporate collaboration and interpretation to address significant humanities research questions.
