Micro-residency grants support collaborations between ASU humanities researchers and other faculty, artists, or community leaders from outside of the Phoenix area.
Humanities researchers are encouraged to submit applications to invite a collaborator for a micro-residency at ASU. These residencies:
- can span from two days to two weeks, and
- must facilitate jointly-authored or jointly-led outcomes, including:
- research publications (such as articles, chapters, book proposals or full manuscripts)
- specialized conferences, seminars or symposia
- digital projects
- creative projects or exhibits
Funding awards may span from $500 to $2000, and the IHR may cover the following visiting scholar expenses:
- costs of travel to ASU
- per diem for the length of the residency
As with all IHR funding programs, recipients are also required to disseminate their work to a larger public within and/or outside the ASU community. Possible formats may include:
- film series
- panel discussions
- brownbag lectures or discussions
- art exhibitions/public performances
- public-facing writing
- digital projects
Interdisciplinary collaborations are encouraged, but they must employ humanities research methodologies as a central part of the research design.
Applications to the IHR micro-residencies funding program will be evaluated on the following criteria:
- impact of micro-residency to individual scholar, ASU and the humanities
- likelihood that the project will be completed
- completion of application
- clearly detailed collaborative nature of the project
- clearly defined public dissemination of works and final outcomes
In the event of multiple competitive submissions, the IHR will give priority to collaborations in which a near-term residency is critical to the project’s completion.
Application deadlines are the first of each month.
