Support Humanities Research at ASU
The Institute’s vision is to advance and support vital humanities scholarship that makes a difference in the world. Through the Institute’s support of such transdisciplinary research, ASU humanities scholars of art, theater, literature, film and media studies, history, philosophy, and religion collaborate regularly with engineers, biologists, geographers, social scientists and others – applying a humanities perspective to research projects in many fields.
What Will Your Gift Make Possible?
Your investment in our initiatives will open exciting, new avenues of humanities research to the Institute. Moreover, private donations supplement the limited financial awards now available to scholars at the onset of their projects. Gifts from donors like you give faculty a competitive advantage when they seek additional federal, state, and foundation funding. As a result, your initial support, along with the Institute’s funding, enables scholars to multiply their research resources – and multiply their impact.
Since its inception, the Institute has supported 41 research clusters, 53 seed grants, 32 ASU fellows and 13 visiting fellows. With your help, we can significantly increase those numbers and expand the valuable research taking place at ASU.
Your gift to the IHR will be used to fund our emerging initiatives including the following:
- IHR Faculty Working Groups
- Research Clusters
- Seed Grant Program
- Fellows Program
- Annual Distinguished Lecturer
- IHR Annual Book Award
- Endowed Professorship
Give Now through the ASU Foundation
All funds will be deposited with the ASU Foundation for A New American University, a non-profit organization that exists to support Arizona State University (ASU). Gifts in support of ASU are subject to Foundation policies and fees. Your gift may be considered a charitable donation. Please consult your tax advisor regarding the deductibility of charitable contributions.

The term transdisciplinarity as used in the IHR mission statement connotes integrative, reciprocal interdisciplinary scholarship that does not simply juxtapose knowledge from traditional disciplines (multi-disciplinarity) but rather transforms the knowledge-seeking process in order to achieve new results. read more...
