The seed grant program is designed to provide support for projects that address or explore significant social challenges in the past, present and future, employing humanities or interdisciplinary methodologies. As these projects develop, they will serve as examples of how a humanities perspective can help build just, ethical and sustainable worlds. 

The institute is thankful for the professionalism and care that the IHR Advisory Board demonstrated in reviewing this cycle of applications. Board members from several departments across ASU campuses contributed their time and expertise in selecting the funding recipients.
