Advancing the Discipline Grants

August 10 - September 01, 2023


NCA funds projects and events that advance the discipline of Communication. While there are many funding outlets for Communication scholars to seek support for academic disciplinary research, NCA is uniquely positioned to support work that is focused on the discipline itself. All funded activities must align with the goals of NCA's strategic plan and have widespread impact that reaches beyond a single department, campus, or NCA unit.  

Proposals submitted through this request for proposals should be for one-time funding not to exceed $5,000. Preference is given to stand-alone projects/events, but partial funding of larger projects/events will be considered, provided the funding is allocated to a specific piece of the larger endeavor. 

Individual research projects will not be considered for funding.

Submission deadline is September 1, 2023.
