Submissions for this form are closed.

The Humanities Research Center invites faculty to submit proposals for the development of innovative research projects that do not sit comfortably within departmental boundaries. Faculty may request up to $5,000 to meet with consultants or scholars, purchase materials and licenses, hire student assistants, cover fees, build databases, and/or support other endeavors that require financial resources outside the scope of individual faculty research accounts. Preference will be given to proposals that promise to spark collaborations or cultivate new scholarly paradigms.

Eligibility: Rice faculty in the School of Humanities are eligible to apply.
