The Winter deadline for applications is 5pm on Friday, February 2nd, 2024. Proposals will be vetted by the Franke’s Governing Board at the end of the Winter quarter.  


In general, we recommend applying at least one quarter in advance of the project start date, e.g. applying in Winter for a Summer project. We recognize, however, that COVID may make flexibility necessary.


Applications should include all information that will enable members of the Franke Board to evaluate the intention and reach of your project.  A proposal of about five pages is usually sufficient. Please include a brief account (with a project title) of the primary research question(s) that the project will address and/or modes of community engagement it will foster; a plan with a timeline for how the project will attain its objectives; and a tentative budget including an itemized estimate of costs and of any funds to be contributed from other sources at UChicago or elsewhere.  


Please state briefly whether and how your project would proceed in the event of a renewal of COVID-related restrictions on travel and other normal features of university life.  We neither expect nor require that all proposals be able to proceed in such circumstances! 


The Franke Institute is eager to help in the planning and application process, and happy to look at draft proposals prior to the final application.

Please contact Richard Neer (Director) at, or Margot Browning (Associate Director) at, if you have questions about the preparation of proposals.


Please send your proposal in MS Word, MS Excel [budget], or PDF to Vee Bonney: and Margot Browning:


Please note that the ongoing program of Franke Event Grants continues as usual; the customary Call for Event Proposals will be circulated at the beginning of autumn, winter, and spring quarters.
