Introducing New HxA Member Grants

Heterodox Academy is grateful to have such a committed, engaged membership. Members regularly carry out work that aligns with, promotes, and supports the HxA mission -- and we want to help.

HxA is introducing new Member Grants: this grant opportunity is available to HxA members seeking support for their mission-aligned efforts and initiatives. 

Funding Priorities

Member Grants of up to $500 are available to support member-led activities that accomplish one of the following goals: 

  • Convene current HxA members, prospective HxA members, and/or HxCommunities (e.g., at a disciplinary conference meeting or through a virtual webinar)
  • Promote or demonstrate the values of open inquiry, viewpoint diversity, or constructive disagreement in higher education (e.g., through a conference or campus presentation on a topic relevant to HxA’s mission)

This grant opportunity is available exclusively to HxA members. Not a member? Join today.

Reporting Expectations 

Within 60 days of the completion of their grant-funded activity, each grantee is responsible for providing HxA:

  • A brief narrative summary of their completed project. The narrative should explain how the grant accomplished one of the goals listed above.
  • For meetings and events, the date of the event and the total number of attendees. 
  • Invoices for any expenses paid in part or in full using the Member Grant.
  • Grantees should maintain regular communication with HxA regarding the progress of their activity.

Apply Today

Complete the form below to apply for the Member Grant (HxA will typically respond to your request within 48 business hours).

DEADLINE EXTENDED: Applications for this round of funding will be accepted through March 31, 2024.

Funding Exclusions

  • HxA is unable to approve proposals to fund: overhead expenses; full economic costings; academic time or salary unless explicitly used for the grant activity
  • Member Grants are not for expense requests related to Campus Communities, which should instead be submitted using this form

Funding Process

  • If approved, funding will be disbursed directly to the grantee using bill.com. ACH or check is available.
  • If approved, the following is required before funds can be disbursed. 
    • A completed Grantee Payment Form
    •  A signed grant agreement (HxA will provide). 
    • A completed W-9 (for members in the US) or W-8 (for members outside of the US).
