NEA to fund research on impact of the arts on individuals and communities

Posted on: August 13, 2015

The deadline is October 20 to apply for grants from the National Endowment for the Arts that support research projects investigating the value and impact of the arts on individuals and communities. The NEA will award up to twenty grants ranging from $10,000 to $30,000 for projects beginning as early as May 1, 2016. Projects may include but are not limited to primary and/or secondary data analyses; psychological studies that take place in clinical or non-clinical settings; third-party evaluations of an arts program’s effectiveness and impact; statistically-driven meta-analyses of existing research; studies that address economic impact; and translational research that moves scientific evidence toward the development, testing, and standardization of new arts-related programs, practices, models, or tools that can be used by other practitioners and researchers. On September 9, the NEA will host a grant-guidelines webinar at 3pmET; register in advance. More information is available here
