Enduring Questions-deadline:September 15,2011
The NEH Enduring Questions grant program supports the development of a new course that will foster intellectual community through the study of an enduring question.This course will encourage undergraduates and teachers to grapple with a fundamental question addressed by the humanities,and to join together in a deep and sustained program of reading in order to encounter influential thinkers over the centuries and into the present day.
What is an enduring question? The following list is neither prescriptive nor exhaustive but serves to illustrate. In addition,please also consider the questions raised in the sample funded projects
- What is a good government?
- What is the value of work?
- What is friendship?
- What is evil?
- Are there universals in human nature?
- What are the origins of the universe?
Enduring questions are questions to which no discipline,field,or profession can lay an exclusive claim. In many cases the predate the formation of the academic disciplines themselves.Enduring questions can be tackled by reflective individuals regardless of their chosen vocations,areas of expertise, or personal backgrounds.They are questions that have more than one plausible or compelling answer. They have long held interest for young people,and they allow for a special,intense dialogue across generations.The Enduring Questions grant program will help promote such dialogue in today's undergraduate environment.
NEH Enduring Questions grants can provide up to $25,000 in outright funds for projects serving a single institution.The grant period may run between eighteen and thirty-six months. Recipients may begin their grants as early as May 1,2012,but must begin no later than January 1,2013.

Ongoing Grant CompetitionsAcademic Research Enhancement Awards (AREA)
National Institutes of Health
The National Institutes of Health created the AREA grant program as part of a special effort to stimulate research at educational institutions that have not been major recipients of NIH support but who, nonetheless, will provide baccalaureate training for a significant number of the Nation's future research scientists. This program is particularly well-suited for researchers in Hofstra University's Departments of Biology, Chemistry and Psychology and may be appropriate to several other academic units that provide basic research in support of biomedical and behavioral sciences. AREA grants provide $300,000 in Direct Costs for periods of 1-3 years. Proposal due dates: January 25, May 25 and September 25 annually.
The Office for Research and Sponsored Programs will conduct NIH AREA grant workshops each semester. For further information, contact Sofia Kakoulidis at x-3-6810 or link to our News and Events page.
Research in Undergraduate Institutions (RUI)
National Science Foundation
The Research in Undergraduate Institutions (RUI) program of the National Science Foundation supports research by faculty members of predominantly undergraduate institutions through the funding of (1) individual and collaborative research projects, (2) the purchase of shared-use research instrumentation, and (3) Research Opportunity Awards for work with NSF-supported investigators at other institutions.
Proposal due dates: Vary by program.
