The COVID crisis underscores the importance of the humanities and the benefits of collaborative research. At this time, the Humanities Collaboratory does not anticipate that its upcoming grants cycle will be affected by the university’s recently announced financial restrictions, given that research is considered essential. However, certain components of grants are not allowed at this time (ie, travel, consultants, conferences) and we ask our applicants to apply with these restrictions in mind. For further information, please contact us by phone (734) 764-3766 or by email: collaboratory@umich.edu.

The Michigan Humanities Collaboratory awarded its first proposal development and project grants in 2016.  Each year thereafter, thanks to the generous support of the Provost’s office, the Collaboratory has continued to provide significant financial support to collaborative research in the humanities.
