Humanities Funding Resources

Finding humanities-focused funding opportunities can be challenging because many of the sources are disconnected and decentralized. The Humanities Institute’s Research Development and Grants Office has created a hub of funding opportunities to streamline the search process for our faculty and students. We have divided the listings into 3 tabs below, and there are hyperlinks to filtered listings on each tab. Please note that these are living documents that will be updated on a regular basis.

UT Austin also has a subscription to Pivot, which is a funding database with opportunities for all disciplines on a global scale. We encourage you to try using it along with keywords and filters specific to your research needs. The RDG office is also happy to work with you on an individual basis to hone your Pivot search focus at

We have created a resource to collect information about your potential humanities projects and then conduct a customized, curated Pivot search to match potential funding sources to your research needs.
