Research Grants in the Arts support research studies that investigate 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.

Research Grants in the Arts provides an opportunity to engage with the National Endowment for the Arts’ five-year agenda for 2017-2021. The research agenda offers guidance on the types of study questions and topics that appeal to the agency’s long-term research goals.

We are interested in research that identifies and examines:

  • Factors that enhance or inhibit arts participation or arts/cultural assets;
  • Detailed characteristics of arts participation or arts/cultural assets, and their interrelationships;
  • Individual-level outcomes of arts participation, specifically outcomes corresponding with the following domains:
    • social and emotional well-being
    • creativity, cognition, and learning
    • physiological processes of health and healing; and
  • Societal or community-level outcomes of arts/cultural assets, specifically outcomes corresponding with the following domains:
    • civic and corporate innovation
    • attraction for neighborhoods and businesses
    • national and/or state-level economic growth
