Research: Art Works funding opportunity

Screen shot 2013-09-04 at 12.49.28 PMThe NEA encourages applications from diverse research fields (e.g., sociology, economics, anthropology, psychology, medicine and health, education, communications, and urban and regional planning) in addition to projects that address topics concerning the value and/or impact of the arts.

The NEA is interested in supporting projects that can be described as value-oriented research, that examines one or more characteristics or conditions of the U.S. arts ecosystem, or research on impact, that investigates the direct and indirect benefits of arts participation on health and well-being, cognitive capacity, learning, creativity, community livability, or economic prosperity.

The NEA anticipates awarding up to 25 grants in the range of $10,000 to $30,000. The deadline for application submission is November 5, 2013 for projects that can begin as early as May 1, 2014. For grant application information and guidelines, click here.
