Confluencenter awards grants and fellowships for creative, interdisciplinary research by scholars in the Colleges of Fine Arts, Humanities and Social and Behavioral Sciences. Our funding programs provide a home for adventurous ideas that do not always fit neatly into existing campus units. If you have a bold new idea, find the funding program that’s right for you.



During the current academic year, the Confluencenter will suspend the competitions for Faculty Research Grants and Graduate Fellowship Awards.

The Confluencenter is engaged in a strategic planning process for phase 2 of operations that will commence in the fall of 2018. We will have more information July 1, 2018.
