NEA Research Grants in the Arts: Research Labs - Assessing the Value and Impact of the Arts on Individuals and Society
Deadline March 29, 2021
The National Endowment for the Arts invites applicants to engage with the agency’s five-year research agenda through two funding opportunities for research projects:
- Research Grants in the Arts funds research studies that investigate the value and/or impact of the arts, either as individual components of the U.S. arts ecology or as they interact with each other and/or with other domains of American life. Matching/cost share grants of $10,000 to $100,000 will be awarded.
- NEA Research Labs funds transdisciplinary research teams grounded in the social and behavioral sciences, yielding empirical insights about the arts for the benefit of arts and non-arts sectors alike. Topic areas of interest include the intersections of the arts and 1) entrepreneurship and innovation; 2) creativity, cognition, and learning; and 3) health and social/emotional well-being. Matching/cost share cooperative agreements of up to $150,000 will be awarded.
