The IHR’s vision is to advance and support vital humanities scholarship that makes a difference in the world. Through the IHR’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 IHR has supported 53 research clusters, 59 seed grants, 33 ASU fellows and 17 visiting fellows. With your help, we can significantly increase those numbers and expand the valuable research taking place at ASU.
