Faculty Grant-in-Aid Awards
Each year, the Islamic Studies Program offers awards to support faculty travel, research, subventions for scholarly manuscripts, etc. The program usually offers a limited number of competitive awards each grant cycle. Award amounts vary and depend upon our budget. Grant-in-aid awardees are selected based on need and relevance of the project to Islamic Studies (broadly defined).

All tenured, tenure-track and visiting faculty (including lecturers and professors of practice) with full-time appointments and multi-year contracts on the Bloomington campus are eligible to apply. Faculty in other Indiana University campuses, full-time faculty on research appointments, one-year visiting faculty, as well as retirees are ineligible. The Program requests that award recipients acknowledge our support in any product of their research, if applicable.

The deadline for the Summer 2018 funding cycle is May 20, 2018. To apply, please fill out this application form, and email it to us (
