Rapid Response Grants

As Princeton humanists continue to navigate the pandemic, the Humanities Council affirms our commitment to supporting humanities scholars across the borders of their disciplines and beyond the University.

Through special rounds of 2020 and 2021 “Rapid Response” Magic Grants offered to Princeton University humanities researchers—faculty, lecturers, postdoctoral fellows, research scholars, professional specialists, and administrators—with parallel grants for graduate and undergraduate students, the Council supported 39 researchers from 27 departments in carrying out new projects aimed at reimagining academic forms and communities in light of current conditions.
