Funding in Humanities and Fine Arts

Opportunities for Research Funding in Humanities and Fine Arts

The following lists include several federal agencies and foundations that provide national-level funding of research in the Arts and Humanities. To maximize your likelihood of success in obtaining funding, choose a funding source and mechanism that best matches the topic, scope, and budget of your proposed research, as well as your career level. Private agencies can be good sources of seed money needed to collect preliminary data for larger scale federal funding. Several agencies offer email alerts when new funding opportunities become available; see individual agency websites for details.
