Teaching and Research Support
Applications for teaching and research support accepted on a rolling basis.



The Kelly-Douglas fund supports projects that enrich our understanding of one or more of the fields comprising the Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences at MIT.

Initially created to support faculty research and teaching in the humanities alone, the Fund has gradually shifted its emphasis, broadening its mission to include lecturers and students (both graduate and undergraduate).


The following pages describe the fund, answer frequently asked questions, and give information about the three areas of funding.
