UC Humanities Research Institute (UCHRI) at UCI

As a grantmaking organization, UCHRI primarily funds UC faculty and graduate students who participate in innovative research and projects that engage a variety of disciplines and stakeholders. Funding opportunities include faculty fellowship, multi-campus working groups, graduate student dissertation support and much more.

The Center for Ideas and Society works in conjunction with UCHRI to develop and promote humanities projects through the UC Humanities Network. To enable partnerships with campus centers, UCHRI allows a small percentage of the project budget to be allocated to the local center for administration of collaborative projects.
