Deadline: November 7, 2022

Bass Connections is now seeking proposals for year-long, team-based research projects that engage faculty, undergraduates, and graduate/professional students in the interdisciplinary exploration of complex societal challenges. Funding ranges from $5,000 to $25,000. Graduate/professional students, postdocs, and trainees/fellows may also propose projects, but all projects must have at least one faculty leader. SEE FULL RFP HERE >>

Faculty may submit proposals to any of six themes. Projects that fall outside of these themes may be submitted through Bass Connections Open. Faculty may also propose a summer Data+ or Story+ project now through the same proposal submission process.

Projects centered in the arts and humanities are encouraged across all themes and special funding exists to support these projects. To be considered for this funding, please check the Arts/Humanities option when applying. Teams that include external artists might also consider applying for the Visiting Artist Program to supplement Bass Connections funding.

For questions, or to discuss project ideas, please contact Laura Howes (director of Bass Connections) or a theme leader, or drop into the Bass Connections RFP office hours (
