Research Interest Group (RIG) Funding Request Form

Advocating for research and teaching in the humanities is central to our mission. We aim to cultivate projects that transcend traditional disciplinary and departmental boundaries. We support Research Interest Groups (RIGs) to build interdisciplinary communities of inquiry. RIG funds are limited and will be awarded on a rolling basis. To be recognized as a Tanner Humanities Center RIG and receive access to Center resources, a minimum of four faculty must be regular participants. We encourage RIGs to have at least one session open to the broader campus or community each year. RIGs that invite student and community involvement will be given priority.
