Introducing New HxA Member Grants

February 28, 2023

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.
