The Office of Research and Economic Development is seeking applications for three internal funding opportunities. 

The deadline for the Arts and Humanities Research Enhancement Program grants is Jan. 14, while applications for Layman grants are due March 31.  

Additionally, ORED is accepting applications for Research Council Visiting Scholar, Distinguished Lecturer and Symposia grants until March 11.  

Links to the RFAs are available online.  

The Arts and Humanities Research Enhancement Program provides awards of up to $15,000 to help faculty achieve short-term goals that enhance their competitiveness for external grants or increase the societal impact of their work, ultimately setting the stage for larger projects.   

Layman Seed Grants are available for non-tenured early career faculty, and Layman New Directions Awards for tenured faculty, each up to $10,000. The Layman New Directions Program is designed for tenured faculty branching into new research directions and those who need support to pilot or develop work toward the next step in a funded research program.   

Proposal guidelines for the Layman and Arts and Humanities Research Enhancement programs encourage the alignment of proposed projects with current national and/or institutional priorities, including UNL’s N2025 Strategic Plan and the seven Grand Challenge themes.  

The Research Council offers up to $800 in funding to support visiting scholars and up to $3,000 for symposia and distinguished lecturers, with applications due in March and again in October, annually.
