The National Endowment for the Art’s (NEA’s) Office of Research & Analysis will make awards to support research that investigates the value and/or impact of the arts, either as individual components within the U.S. arts ecology or as they interact with each other and/or with other domains of American life.

Research – Art Works will offer support for projects in two areas:

  • Track One: Value and Impact. These research projects aim to examine the value and/or impact of the arts in any topic area(s) by using data and methods appropriate to the proposed research questions. For topic are discussion, see the Art Works system map.
  • Track Two: Experimental and Quasi-Experimental Designs. These research projects aim to test the causal or inferred-causal impact of the arts on individual or cohort outcomes by using experimental or quasi-experimental design methods appropriate to the proposed research questions.

Amount: Dependent upon track, as follows:

  • Track One: Up to 20 grants will be awarded, ranging from $10,000-$30,000
  • Track Two: Up to five grants will be awarded, ranging from $30,000 to $100,000

All grants require a non-federal match of at least one to one.

Eligibility: Nonprofit, tax-exempt 501(c)3, U.S. organizations; units of state or local government; or federally recognized tribal communities or tribes. This includes colleges and universities.

Note: From the NEA website as of August 7, 2017: “The President’s FY 2018 budget blueprint proposes the elimination of the National Endowment for the Arts. With that said, our FY 2017 operations remain unchanged. We continue to make FY 2017 grant awards and will continue to honor all obligated grant funds made to date. In addition, we will continue to accept grant applications for FY 2018 at our usual deadlines. The President’s budget request is a first step in a very long budget process. The agency continues to operate as usual and will do so until a new budget is enacted by Congress.”
