2017 Grant Deadlines

Date: March 10, 2017

The AAUP Foundation has established quarterly deadlines for grant applications. In 2017, the Foundation will accept applications in each quarter until March 31, June 30, September 30, and December 31. In keeping with its mission to support principles of academic freedom and the quality of higher education in a free and democratic society, the Foundation welcomes applications from faculty impacted by the Trump Administration’s immigration ban or by other threats to academic freedom.

Our grant funds include the Legal Defense Fund—which defrays legal expenses for faculty involved in legal cases of national significance in higher education—and the Academic Freedom Fund—which assists individual faculty members when their academic freedom has been threatened and supports AAUP investigations, publications, and events that advance the cause of academic freedom and shared governance. The Foundation also supports faculty engagement in shared governance, academic conferences, and other professional opportunities through its travel funds. A complete list of the AAUP Foundation's special funds is here.
