Research Grants

Application due date:  TBD

Maximum amount: TBD

Amounts of up to $3,000 may be requested for materials and expenses related to a research project or creative activity faculty members plan to undertake and for which other funding opportunities do not exist. Research Grants cannot be used as compensation for faculty time and must be clearly connected to the advancement of a specific project.

Funds awarded in the fall round become available in January and, generally, must be fully expended by the end of that calendar year, i.e. December 31st. Those awarded in the spring become available in July and, generally, must be expended before the end of that fiscal year, i.e. June 15th. Your award letter will include information specific to your grant. Faculty members who receive Research Grants will submit a one-page report summarizing the grant-supported activity and its impact on their research or creative project.


HFA's full-time faculty members at any rank may apply.  N.B. Applications from faculty members who have not received Research and Sabbatical Grants will be given priority.
