The Public Humanities Project supports research projects of varying lengths that benefit the wider Bloomington community and southern Indiana at large. Applicants must partner with civic or other community organizations to plan and manage a research agenda with scholarly as well as public deliverables. This is a non-competitive program; proposals are considered on a case-by-case basis by the director of the Arts and Humanities Council and appropriate members of the council. See the National Endowment for the Humanities website for relevant examples.
All tenured and tenure‐eligible faculty members at Indiana University Bloomington.
