Research in the Humanities

Welcome to the University of Utah
College of Humanities Office of Research

U Humanities faculty, we are here to support you in your research and other scholarly pursuits, including helping you find grants and fellowships that match your research interests; assisting with preparing and submitting funding proposals; and providing  grant training and pre- and post-award services. If this is your first visit, the Funding Resources and Proposal Resources sections are great places to start. If you would like to meet about your research and funding needs, please contact us.

Please notify us as soon as you decide to apply for any grants or fellowships. This includes all external funding opportunities, including if you are submitting directly to a funder, as well as any internal funding opportunities, including limited submission opportunities (LOS). This also includes if you are a co-PI on a proposal being submitted by another college or university.
