For Faculty

Internal Funding Opportunities in the Humanities

Research and Publication Fund

The Research and Publication Fund supports costs associated with the publication of faculty scholarly or creative activities. The fund may be used to offset the cost of obtaining permissions, reproducing photographs or other images, transcribe interviews, or, occasionally, of indexing. The fund may not be used to pay for editors. Funds must be paid back using revenue obtained from the sales of the publication. This fund cannot be used by faculty with access to individual or department funding.
