The Research Travel Grant supports research or creative projects to be conducted away from the Bloomington campus, which can be accomplished within a time frame of two to five weeks. Grants are not intended for conference travel or for teaching purposes.

Applications should include the following materials:

  • summary of the project (500 to 600 words max.)
  • curriculum vitae (only relevant portions; five pages at most)
  • detailed budget
  • timetable
  • letter of support from the Department Chair
  • one other letter of recommendation from an IU faculty member or from an outside source

Grants may be awarded for up to $7,000.

If other internal or external funding is received for the same project, CAHI requires notification, and reserves the right to adjust or reassign awards in light of this information. Expenditures must follow all university and College policies.

Who may apply:
Tenured and tenure-track faculty in the College of Arts and Sciences whose primary area of research or creative activity is in the arts and humanities.

Upon Completion of an Award
The Institute requires that all grant and fellowship recipients send a brief description of the scholarly/artistic activities accomplished as a result of the CAHI award by the end of the semester following the award period. All grant recipients are kindly requested to acknowledge the support of the College Arts and Humanities Institute in any flyers, posters, publications or publicity.
