Grant Services

The Center for Humanities Research offers a number of resources and services to support faculty in their grant seeking efforts. We offer general grant writing workshops each year, as well as periodic focused workshops on specific types of applications. In addition, our Research and Grant Writing Coordinator is available to help faculty through individual consultation focused on the following:

  • Discussing research ideas and their suitability for funding
  • Identifying funding opportunities
  • Approaching sponsors
  • Reviewing and revising proposals
  • Preparing budgets
  • Assuring that submissions guidelines are met
  • Routing proposals through UMD administrative procedures

Under this section you will find a number of links, documents for download and other guidance to get you started. We are here to support you in securing the necessary resources to allow your research and scholarship to flourish.

Previous successful Faculty Funds/DRIF proposals have been awarded each year to faculty across the college. Examples of successful proposals are available for review in the ARHU Proposal Library: 

Please take note of the Integrated Research Resources on Campus, or IRRoC, which was designed to serve as a centralized resource to help UMD researchers develop their ideas, write proposals, create budgets, manage their research awards, access templates, and follow compliance and reporting guidelines.
