Funding projects that help push dialogue, critical engagement, and scholarly projects forward is the highest priority of the Institute."

Alexis Boylan, UCHI Director of Academic Affairs

UCHI is committed to supporting humanities (broadly defined) dialogue and research on UConn’s campus and beyond. To that end, UCHI offers funding support for scholarly events on campus, including invited speakers and conferences; for research projects in the humanities and allied social sciences; and for faculty working groups. We also offer book support awards, to aid faculty in the final stages of book publication, and book manuscript workshops for junior and mid-career faculty. Moreover, as part of UConn's involvement in the Folger Institute Consortium, the Early Modern Studies Working Group supports travel and top-up awards to visit the Folger Shakespeare Library.
