Subvention Grants (Books, Articles and Exhibitions)

To Assist in the Publication and Exhibition of Faculty Research in the Humanities

The URI Center for the Humanities has a limited amount of funding available to assist faculty in the humanities working with a scholarly press, an article in a peer reviewed journal or exhibitor that requires the author to share in the cost of publication or exhibition. Subvention grants are awarded for amounts up to a maximum of $1,000 per faculty member per project to assist with such costs as obtaining permissions, reproducing photographs, indexing books, and framing artwork. Costs of doing research (such as travel to archives) are not included. (Research funding is available through the Center Faculty Research Grant program.) Preference will be given to new submissions rather than funding the same project twice within the same fiscal year.
