The IHR facilitates and supports diverse research clusters at ASU. Our aim is to assist research and communication among scholars and to enrich the intellectual climate of the university.

Awards are up to $1,000, and may include full or partial support for a visiting scholar.

In addition to general research cluster funding, the Reverend Jenny Norton has provided funding to support an annual research cluster in the Institute for Humanities Research which focuses on research on women in any field and on any topic. Gender scholars are encouraged to apply for the Norton Award and may receive an additional $750.
