Delmas Foundation General Program
Deadline: Rolling Funding: $25,000-$50,000 The Foundation intends to further the humanities along a broad front, supporting projects which address the concerns of the historical studia humanitatis: a humanistic education rooted in the great traditions of the past; the formation of human beings according to cultural, moral, and aesthetic ideals derived from that past; and the ongoing debate over how these ideals may best be conceived and realized.
Programs in the following areas are eligible: history; archaeology; literature; languages, both classical and modern; philosophy; ethics; comparative religion; the history, criticism, and theory of the arts; and those aspects of the social sciences which share the content and methods of humanistic disciplines. The Foundation welcomes projects that cross the boundaries between humanistic disciplines and explore the connection between the humanities and other areas of scholarship.
The Humanities Program is primarily directed to institutions of higher education and humanistic enterprises such as learned societies, museums, and major editorial projects. The program may also consider, on a selective basis, projects that increase the exposure of those outside these institutions to the humanistic experience or that strengthen preparation for the humanistic disciplines in secondary education.
These programs do not fund individuals. Organizations seeking funding, within the scope of the program guidelines, should send a letter of inquiry to the Foundation, addressed to the Foundation Administrator. Letters of inquiry should not exceed two typewritten pages. Endowment contributions will be considered only in cases where the purpose and benefit of the grants are clearly focused. No grants will be made for building campaigns. As a rule the Foundation does not fund indirect costs as components in its grants.
Delmas Foundation Humanities Research Library Program
Deadline: Rolling Funding: $25,000-$50,000 The program concentrates primarily in those areas of its founders' interests and aims to be fully complementary to the foundation's other program areas (i.e., humanities scholarship, performing arts, and Venetian history and culture). The overall objective of the Research Library Program is to improve the ability of research libraries to serve the needs of scholarship in the humanities and the performing arts, and to help make their resources more widely accessible to scholars and the general public. Wherever possible, grants to libraries seek to promote cooperative cataloguing projects, with an emphasis on access to archival, manuscript, and other unique sources; some elements of interpretation and exhibition; scholarly library publications; bibliographical and publishing projects of interest to research libraries; and preservation or conservation work and research.
The geographical concentration is primarily but not exclusively directed toward European and American history and letters, broadly defined. Technological developments that support humanities research and access to humanities resources are also eligible. Conferences designed to address these issues in collaborative ways, and programs formulated to enhance or leverage similar activity by other institutions, consortia, or funding agencies will also be considered
There are no application deadlines for these programs; inquiries are reviewed on an ongoing basis. After reviewing the letter of inquiry, the Foundation may request further information or a full proposal from the applicant.
Henry Luce Foundation
Deadline: Rolling Funding: $50,000-$200,000 The program supports exhibitions, publications and research that emphasize an aesthetic approach to American art, specifically scholarly study of painting, sculpture, prints, drawings, decorative arts, photography, and architecture. This foundation also supports higher education and programs for Asia, environmental public policy, religion and international affairs, and special projects.
Deadline: September 1, 2013 Funding: $15,000 Eligible topics include: natural and historic resources; art, architecture, and design; cultural history; education, civil liberties and other public issues.
The program seeks work that appeals to an informed general audience; gives evidence of high standards in editing, design,and production; promises a reasonable shelf life; and might not otherwise be published. Past grant recipients have included civic and academic institutions, museums, independent and university presses, and professional societies.
