12 April 2018, 5 p.m.


Teams, including members of working groups, should submit drafts of applications for Collaborative Grants using either the ACLS or NEH guidelines. Two kinds of proposals will be given awards:

Ready: If you are far along in your collaboration and have already submitted a grant to ACLS (due September 27) or are planning to submit an NEH (due December 17), submit your draft or finished application to receive $500 per collaborator (up to 5 collaborators) in research bursaries to TAMU employees, and money to bring extra-institutional collaborators to campus to complete the application.

Forming: If your grant is in the formative stages, write up as much as possible using the NEH or ACLS formats. You need not yet have all collaborators in place: $500 per applicant in research bursaries to TAMU employees, plus funding to bring potential collaborators outside TAMU.

You do not have to complete the budget–we can help you contact the appropriate SRS officer for that.

Deadlines: You may submit either by October 12 or November 2. Please note that the competition will be less steep for the earlier deadline.

SUBMISSION INSTRUCTIONS: Applicants should submit a current two-page c.v. for each known collaborator and the draft of the ACLS/NEH proposal as a Word document to

If you do not receive an email confirming receipt of the  application from the Glasscock Center by the application deadline,  please call (979) 845-8328 or email
