Collaborative Inquiry and Discovery

The Center for the Humanities offers three signature funding programs to nurture collaborative interdisciplinary research. StudioLab teams join scholars from multiple disciplines in shared inquiry and intellectual community. Our Cross-Generational Research Initiative (CGRI) supports research teams comprised of faculty, graduate students, and undergraduates engaged in multi-year collaborative research projects. The Arts and Humanities Grant Support program features tailored options for supporting scholars applying for federal and foundation grants and fellowships.
