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
