The Humanities Collaboratory began through an investment by the Provost’s Office to support collaborative, multi-generational, inclusive, and transformational humanities scholarship that engages compelling questions for the academy and the world beyond. They offer three tiers of funding: (i.) 5×5 Incubator Grants bring together small groups of faculty ($500); (ii.) Proposal Development Grants support the development of a project that culminates in an application for funding ($45-85,000); (iii.) Project Grants support research projects advancing the humanities fields through collaboration ($500,000).
