College of Idaho Grant Funds
At the center of the College’s mission is the concept of the teacher-scholar—a gifted, dedicated teacher whose work in the classroom is enhanced by deep professional training and an ongoing commitment to scholarship.
The College has established a fund to spur research by reinvesting recovered indirect costs. This fund supports summer grant-writing stipends, sabbatical research, student-faculty collaboration, and other scholarly activities.

IDAHO HUMANITIES COUNCIL Fall 2016 program
IDAHO HUMANITIES COUNCIL INVITES GRANT APPLICATIONS FOR RESEARCH FELLOWSHIPS
DEADLINE: September 15, 2016
The purpose of the Idaho Humanities Council Research Fellowship Program (RFP) is to stimulate scholarship in the humanities, to provide support for scholars who need time and money for research, and to share the results with academic and public audiences. The IHC will award up to four fellowships of up to $3,500 each year.
Prospective applicants are strongly encouraged to review the guidelines and contact IHC staff well in advance of the deadline to discuss project ideas before beginning a proposal.
Scholars will be defined as those who hold a minimum of a Masters degree in one of the humanities disciplines as designated by the National Endowment for the Humanities, though in rare cases people without the minimum qualifications will be considered if they have a superior research and professional publication record. Applicants need not be affiliated with an institution of higher education. Those who have received a RF in the past five years and graduate students are ineligible.
Scholars in all disciplines of the humanities are eligible to apply for Research Fellowships. Projects do not have to be about Idaho. Out-of-state scholars are eligible to apply if their research is of special significance to the state of Idaho.
Research Fellowship recipients are expected to plan at least two public presentations about the results of their research. Public presentations may include lectures before academic audiences, although IHC prefers that results be shared with the public in a meaningful forum if possible.
Grant guidelines and the online application are available on the IHC website under "Grants." The website also includes a listing of recent grant awards, the applicable definition of "humanities" and other general information.
More information is available here, and in the IHC Research Fellowships PDF on this page.
