National Endowment for the Arts: Research – Art Works

Deadline: October 20, 2015

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.

The agency has determined that all grants awarded under this category will have the following for their primary outcome:

  • Understanding: Evidence of the value and/or impact of the arts is expanded and promoted.

This includes the potential to elevate the public profile of arts-related research, in at least one of the following ways:

  • Increase the variety of knowledge domains or fields of technical expertise that contribute to arts-related research
  • Heighten the relevance and significance of arts-related research to policy and practice
  • Reflect strong collaboration between arts practitioners and researchers or evaluators

Amount: Up to 20 grants will be made, ranging from $10,000-$30,000 each.

Eligibility: Nonprofit, tax-exempt 501(c)(3), U.S. organizations; units of state or local government; or federally recognized tribal communities or tribes. This may include, but is not limited to, colleges and universities.
