Grants-in-Aid — Conferences

  • Application Deadline: October 16, 2017 and March 19, 2018
    This form should be completed by a faculty member applicant.

    The Center for the Humanities has limited funding to assist conferences with a humanistic theme held at NYU in New York City or at a global location with up to $5,000. The conference should address topics of relevance to scholars in more than one discipline and include concrete steps to engage the larger public. Faculty organizers must be appointed in at least two different NYU departments or schools.


    We invite applications from faculty in full-time positions at NYU. Awards may be made for up to $5,000 per conference depending on need. At least two faculty must apply jointly as co-organizers of the conference.

    Program Requirements

    Recipients must submit a report, including a summary of expenditures, at the conclusion of the project.


    Grants-in-Aid provide funding up to a maximum of $5,000 for conferences and collaborative projects. Funding is not available for a single visiting lecturer or for any activities or conferences that do not take place at NYU or an NYU global site. Grants-in-Aid cannot support faculty travel to conferences.

    Selection Criteria

    Each proposal is reviewed by the NYU Center for the Humanities Grants-in-Aid Subcommittee and is evaluated in accordance with the applicant’s statement of its intellectual purpose and significance. Preference will be given to applications that reflect the participation of more than one department or school.
