The Humanities Institute wants to help UC Davis faculty and graduate students receive grant funding. Aside from offering grant-writing workshops and information sessions with program officers, we meet with faculty to formulate ideas and projects, to help them find collaborators and community partners, and to identify funding opportunities. And, with a professional grant writer on staff, we can also help refine and polish those funding proposals. In 2013-2014, the Humanities Institute assisted in developing successful proposals for the Mellon Foundation’s John E. Sawyer Seminar in the Comparative Study of Cultures as well as a $1.725 million renewal of the Mellon Research Initiatives in the Humanities; a National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) Summer Stipend award and an NEH Summer Seminar and Institute for College and University Teachers on Dante’s Divine Comedy; a Chateaubriand Fellowship; a seed grant from University Outreach and International Programs; two UC President’s Public Partnerships in the Humanities program awards, among many others.

“The UC Davis Humanities Institute is the hub for grant- making in the humanities and humanistic social sciences. Our goal is to increase the number of successful grants supporting cutting-edge research in all our related disciplines.”
