Funding Opportunities in the Liberal Arts
This list of grant opportunities is designed to help graduate students in the College of Liberal Arts at the University of Texas at Austin identify support for the various phases of their graduate careers. It includes 214 grants; 187 support graduate study in the social sciences, and 109 fund work in the humanities. Fifty-one opportunities are open to international students and another 132 state no specific citizenship requirements. The grants cover multiple phases of study including coursework, pre-dissertation research and travel, professional training opportunities, dissertation research, and dissertation writing.
While this list is not intended to be comprehensive, it does represent three years of careful searching for opportunities for Liberal Arts graduate students. We hope you find it useful as one resource in your grant search.
Liberal Arts Grants Services, August 2014


How to Use this List



Please skim: Only a fraction of the opportunities here will be relevant to any individual student's specific area of study. The format is designed to be easy to skim so that you can identify these more quickly.
Deadlines: A majority of the opportunities here recur on an annual basis, but in some cases the sponsor had not posted a new deadline at the time the list was compiled. Please use previous year's deadlines as a guideline and check back with sponsors that interest you for updates.
Some grants may be submitted directly to the sponsor, others require the university to officially approve and submit your grant. In all cases, the deadline listed is the date of required first contact. If the grant will be submitted through Liberal Arts Grants Services, the listed deadline is three weeks in advance of the sponsor's deadline.
How to apply: Most grants are either submitted directly to the sponsor or through Liberal Arts Grants Services. There are others, however, that require special procedures such as departmental review, approval by the Graduate School, or competitive university-wide review. Please read the "how to apply" section carefully for the grants that interest you and be sure to contact the individuals listed there for additional information, if necessary.
International Students: A handful of grants, especially those funded by the U.S. government, restrict applications to U.S. citizens and permanent residents.
In this list, "Y" indicates that the sponsor accepts applications from international students. In some cases, the sponsor may designate specific nationalities that may apply, or they may require that the international student should be enrolled in a U.S. university at the time of application.
"N" indicates that the sponsor will accept applications from U.S. citizens or permanent residents only.
"Unknown" means that the solicitation was not clear on nationality or citizenship requirements. International students interested in these opportunities should clarify by reading the solicitation carefully and contacting the sponsor if need be.
Discipline: Grants have been marked as Humanities, Social Sciences or both for your convenience. Individual sponsors may have nuanced interpretations of this division, so be sure to read the solicitation carefully to make sure that the sponsor accepts proposals from your discipline.
Some sponsors are more interested in your methodology than your home department—if you use methodological tools from other disciplines (i.e. humanists who use ethnography or linguistic methods, and social scientists who draw on archival research) be sure to consider opportunities in your broader, interdisciplinary base.
