The DHI is the hub for humanities research at UC Davis. We support that research through individual and collaborative grants of our own but are also devoted to helping faculty find that funding externally. Below are funding opportunities both local and national. Should you find an opportunity you want to pursue contact the DHI for help. We can share successful proposals from other UC Davis faculty and offer advice on how to position your project for the top competitions such as NEH, ACLS, and the Guggenheim.

The UC Davis Humanities Institute hosts a grants calendar of extramural funding opportunities. Faculty may also conduct a personalized funding search using the Community of Science Pivot database, available through the UC Davis Office of Research. Pivot allows researchers to create and save customized searches of grants, fellowships, and other funding opportunities from public and private, domestic and international sources. Though the name refers to holdings on science funding, this service also offers a wealth of information on social sciences, humanities & community outreach funding.
Below are links to major grant sources in the humanities:
American Council of Learned Societies
National Endowment for the Humanities
John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation
The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation
Social Science Research Council
Fulbright Foundation
