The UC Davis Humanities Institute supports research on and off campus through grants to individuals and research groups. 

The DHI's research grants allow faculty and graduate students both the time and money to complete their projects. The annual Faculty Research Seminar is one of the longest running programs and among the most valued by humanities faculty who appreciate both the time and the community the seminar provides.  For graduate scholars, the Margrit Mondavi Graduate Fellowships grew out of the late Ms. Mondavi’s wish to support creative artists, a pledge that continues with a bequest of Robert and Margrit Mondavi with support from the L&S Dean’s office.

We actively seek out external funding and have secured support from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation for the Mellon Research Initiatives in the Humanities and the Mellon Public Scholars Program.
