Ten Iowa State University scholars have been selected to receive more than $54,000 in institutional funding from the fall 2023 round of grants offered through the Center for Excellence in the Arts and Humanities (CEAH).

Offered twice each year — and administered in collaboration with the Office of the Vice President for Research — the suite of CEAH funding opportunities provide support to Iowa State’s humanities, arts, and design faculty members engaging in vital scholarship that builds knowledge and bolsters the university’s reputation as an innovative research institution. The grant recipients selected this fall will receive funding support to pursue humanities-focused research projects, plan conferences and seminars, and explore digital scholarship over the course of fiscal year 2024.

“The CEAH’s grant programs provide much needed support to our arts, design, and humanities faculty whose research informs every facet of Iowa State’s intellectual enterprise,” said CEAH Director Matt Sivils. “It’s critical work — the humanities teach us not only how to think, but how to live intelligently. Humanities work teaches us to lead by inspiring the best in ourselves and others, and to leverage truth in service of innovation. Since its inception, innovative arts and humanities research has resided at the very core of Iowa State’s Land Grant mission. This year’s award winners truly embody the spirit of this mission.”
