Welcome to the Humanities Institute’s Research Development & Grants (RDG) office


The HI’s RDG office supports UT faculty, staff, and student researchers who are involved in humanities-inflected grants and fellowships. The RDG is led by Jeff Meserve, Assistant Director of Research Development, who is thrilled to support projects that align with his humanities background.

A few of the grant services that RDG will provide or assist with:

  1. Proposal development
  2. Budget support
  3. Grant submissions
  4. Post-award grant management
  5. Financial oversight
  6. Reporting

To provide equitable service to a large constituency, please complete the “Submit a Proposal” Google Form below and contact Jeff a few weeks before a proposal is due. This will help ensure that adequate attention can be given to everyone who is in the submission queue.

If you want to talk about a potential project or have any questions, please contact Jeff Meserve at or call (512) 471-3350. If you are ready to submit a proposal, please click the button below to complete the Google Form.
