The University of California Institute for Research in the Arts supports embedded arts research through critical exchange

NEA application guidelines are now available for funding through Research: ArtWorks!

Dear Friends of NEA Research:

The National Endowment for the Arts’ Office of Research & Analysis announces that application guidelines are available for funding through Research: ArtWorks. This program supports research that investigates the value of the U.S. arts ecosystem and the impact of the arts on other domains of American life.

The NEA encourages applicants from diverse research fields (e.g., sociology, economics, anthropology) and diverse areas of expertise, including, but not limited to, health, education, and urban and regional planning. Although applicants must be non-profit organizations, they are encouraged to partner with for-profit entities, and/or use commercial and/or administrative datasets.

The NEA anticipates awarding up to 25 grants in the range of $10,000 to $30,000. The deadline for application submission is November 6, 2012 for projects that can begin as early as May 1, 2013.

The NEA will hold an informational webinar for potential applicants on September 12, 2012. More information is forthcoming.
