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.  

National Endowment for the Humanities

Deadline: Rolling  
Funding: $800,000  
The Bridging Cultures through Film: International Topics program supports documentary films that examine international and transnational themes in the humanities. These projects are meant to spark Americans’ engagement with the broader world by exploring countries and cultures outside of the United States. Proposed documentaries must be analytical and deeply grounded in humanities scholarship.

The Division of Public Programs encourages innovative nonfiction storytelling that presents multiple points of view in creative formats. The proposed film should range in length from thirty minutes to a feature-length documentary.

We invite a wide range of approaches to international and transnational topics and themes, such as
an examination of a critical issue in ethics, religion, literature, or history, viewed through an international lens;
an exploration of a topic that transcends a single nation-state;
a biography of a foreign leader, writer, artist, or historical figure; or
an exploration of the history and culture(s) of a specific region, country, or community outside of the United States.  

Society for Neuroscience

Deadline: April 30, 2014  
Funding: $15,000  
Founded in 1969, the Society for Neuroscience is the world’s largest organization of scientists and physicians devoted to understanding the brain and nervous system, with nearly 42,000 members in more than 90 countries and 130 chapters worldwide.

SfN's Young Investigator Award recognizes outstanding achievements and contributions by a young neuroscientist who has demonstrated scholarly independence. The awardee will receive a $15,000 award and complimentary registration, transportation (economy air or ground), and two nights hotel accommodations for the SfN annual meeting.

To be eligible, applicants must be actively engaged in research at the time the award is given; show evidence of heading an independent research laboratory; and have received a Ph.D. or M.D. (or equivalent) within the past ten years.
