Humanities Program Grants (Museums, Archives, Major Editorial Projects)
The Gladys Krieble Delmas Foundation supports projects which address the concerns of the historical studia humanitatis: a humanistic education rooted in the great traditions of the past; the formation of human beings according to cultural, moral, and aesthetic ideals derived from that past; and the ongoing debate over how these ideals may best be conceived and realized.
Deadline: Continuous. However, according to Pele Bauch, Foundation Administrator at the Delmas Foundation, the Foundation "can only receive one request per department per year."
- Duke University Press
- Art, Art History and Visual Studies
- Classical Studies
Internal Deadline: Those applying for 2018 should submit materials by December 1, 2017. (See Internal Nomination below.)
The Foundation reviews proposals throughout the year. There are no deadlines for organizational applications.
Areas of Interest
Programs in the following areas are eligible: history; archaeology; literature; languages, both classical and modern; philosophy; ethics; comparative religion; the history, criticism, and theory of the arts; and those aspects of the social sciences which share the content and methods of humanistic disciplines. The Foundation welcomes projects that cross the boundaries between humanistic disciplines and explore the connection between the humanities and other areas of scholarship.
The Humanities Program is primarily directed to institutions of higher education and humanistic enterprises such as learned societies, museums, and major editorial projects. The program may also consider, on a selective basis, projects that increase the exposure of those outside these institutions to the humanistic experience or that strengthen preparation for the humanistic disciplines in secondary education.
2015 and 2016: Caroline Bruzelius - Art, Art History and Visual Studies
