Grant Description

The Arts Endowment╔к_s support of a project may start on May 1, 2012, or any time thereafter. The NEA will make grants for research projects that use existing datasets to mine data for analyses of the value and impact of the U.S. arts sector on the nation, whether on individuals or communities. Applications should present novel research questions that have not previously been explored with the referenced dataset(s). Projects that will be conducted in partnership with for-profit entities, and/or which use commercial and/or administrative datasets, are also encouraged. The agency has determined that all grants awarded under this category will have the following as their primary outcome: ╔к_ Enhancing knowledge and understanding: Evidence of the value and impact of the arts is expanded and promoted. Organizations will be asked to address the anticipated results of their projects in their applications. If a grant is received, grantees will be asked to report their findings in their final report. Before applying, please review the reporting requirements on the National Endowment for the Arts Final Descriptive Report form and the ╔к_Administrative Requirements╔к_ for information about a final work product research report. In the first year of the program, funds will be given only for the analysis of high-quality datasets. In future years, it may be possible for applicants to submit requests for projects involving primary data collection.
