NOTE: AY21-22 call for proposals has not been issued. Please check back here during Spring Semester for updated details. 



Link to Cover Sheet

To encourage scholarship and growth of externally funded research in the areas of fine arts, humanities, and social sciences, the Division of Research and Innovation is relaunching the program piloted last year. We have incorporated feedback from faculty and made changes to the program. Due to the pandemic we have modified some programs from last year. All funding recipients will be required to propose an article for The Conversation, a service that creates visibility for your work among a national general readership audience, within one year of receipt of funding. 


To apply for funding through the Fine Arts, Humanities, and Social Science Support Program, please submit the following:

  • Cover sheet (click here).
  • CV (maximum of five pages).
  • Summary of Individual financial accounts (including any carry forward).
  • Any specific requirements for your selected grant program.


Review Process: Applications will be reviewed for recommendation by an interdisciplinary faculty committee; final decisions will be made by the Executive Vice President for Research. Conservative budgets are encouraged.

Deadline for Submission: TBD (AY21-22 Call Not Yet Issued)

Submission Instructions: Submit all required materials as a single PDF to researchdev@memphis.edu.

For questions about the submission process, email Dr. Nichole Saulsberry-Scarboro T.N.S@memphis.edu
