National Endowment for the Art’s Research: Art Works 2019

Deadline: 9 October 2018

The National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) is seeking applications for its “Research: Art Works” to support research that investigates the value and/or impact of the arts, either as individual components of the U.S. arts ecology or as they interact with each other and/or with other domains of American life.

By providing financial support to deserving projects, Research: Art Works will spur growth in the number of people across diverse fields of inquiry who are experienced in and knowledgeable about arts-related research. This program also seeks to heighten the relevance and significance of arts-related research to policy and practice.

Research Areas

Research: Art Works offers support for projects in two areas:

  1. Track One: Value and Impact: These are matching grants ranging from $10,000-$30,000 for research projects that aim to examine the value and/or impact of the arts in any topic area(s) by using data and methods appropriate to the proposed research questions. Projects relying primarily on experimental/quasi-experimental design methods should apply to Track Two.
  2. Track Two: Experimental and Quasi-Experimental Designs: These are matching grants ranging from $30,000-$100,000 for research projects that aim to test the causal or inferred-causal impact of the arts on individual or cohort outcomes by using experimental or quasi-experimental design methods appropriate to the proposed research questions. This Track is only for projects relying primarily on experimental or quasi-experimental research methods. Projects that do not use experimental or quasi-experimental research methods will be considered ineligible if submitted under this track.
