HARP Grant Deadlines Approaching
Humanities and Arts Research Program (HARP)
The Office for Research and Innovation invites applications to the 2019-2020 Humanities and Arts Research Program – Production (HARP-P). Guidelines and instructions can be found online at the grant proposal system (https://msu.smapply.io). Proposals are to be submitted electronically through the HARP system. If you have any questions after reviewing the HARP website, contact: firstname.lastname@example.org or 432-3773.
The HARP Production program provides funds, when research is complete, to help subsidize the costs of book publication, permissions to use copyrighted materials, CD recording and production, the creation and mounting of exhibits, and other expenses associated with producing the results of a completed creative or research project. A contract from the publisher will be required if funds are being requested to publish a book. Proposals requesting funds to complete textbooks will not be considered.
Within the production program, there are two panels that conduct the reviews (Humanities Research and Exhibition & Performance). The Humanities Research panel will review applications that support the completion of research, such as the publication of a book or production of a film. The Exhibition & Performance panel will review proposals that provide support for an exhibit or performance. See the FAQs posted on the grant proposal system for clarification.
In order to respond to the more immediate needs that these subsidies often entail, the panels review applications twice a year, once in the fall and once in the spring semester. Funds will be available for an additional year after the fiscal year of the original funding allocation.
We encourage you to consider this program to support appropriate arts and humanities research and scholarship. The HARP Production submission deadline is Thursday, January 30, 2020.
