The Gladys Krieble Delmas Foundation intends to further the humanities along a broad front, supporting projects which address the concerns of the historical studia humanitatis: a humanistic education rooted in the great traditions of the past; the formation of human beings according to cultural, moral, and aesthetic ideals derived from that past; and the ongoing debate over how these ideals may best be conceived and realized.
Programs in the following areas are eligible: history; archaeology; literature; languages, both classical and modern; philosophy; ethics; comparative religion; the history, criticism, and theory of the arts; and those aspects of the social sciences which share the content and methods of humanistic disciplines. The Gladys Krieble Delmas Foundation welcomes projects that cross the boundaries between humanistic disciplines and explore the connection between the humanities and other areas of scholarship. Programs of institutions in Venice relating to the humanities are eligible in this category. (Individuals seeking research grants for work in Venice should see Venetian Programs.) The geographical concentration is primarily but not exclusively directed toward European and American history and letters, broadly defined.
The Humanities Program is primarily directed to institutions of higher education and humanistic enterprises such as learned societies, museums, and major editorial projects. The program may also consider, on a selective basis, projects that increase the exposure of those outside these institutions to the humanistic experience or that strengthen preparation for the humanistic disciplines. The prime criterion remains that of Gladys and Jean Delmas: a commitment to excellence, whether proven or promised.
Performing Arts Program
The principal mission of the Performing Arts Program is to provide core program and special project support to organizations of quality in the fields of dance, music and theater that perform and produce or present work in New York City. Applications are accepted only from performing arts organizations based in New York City.
The Gladys Krieble Delmas Foundation has a special interest in supporting:
Ballet and modern dance companies, especially those that are actively working to preserve an important legacy of past achievement, and the presenters who make the work of these companies available to the public and otherwise provide support to the dance field;
Theater companies and presenters that have demonstrated a commitment to include the classics in their regular offerings;
Music groups and concert presenters committed to making the contemporary repertory available to New York City audiences and a limited number of notable early music groups of professional importance to the field;
Organizations formed to support the work of artists who, over time, have reinterpreted the traditional elements of dance or theater and thereby have broadened aesthetic appreciation and understanding.
Research Libraries Program
The Research Libraries Program concentrates primarily in those areas of its founders’ interests and aims to be fully complementary to the Gladys Krieble Delmas Foundation’s other program areas (i.e., humanities scholarship, performing arts, and Venetian history and culture).
The overall objective of the Research Libraries Program is to improve the ability of research libraries to serve the needs of scholarship in the humanities and the performing arts, and to help make their resources more widely accessible to scholars and the general public. Wherever possible, grants to libraries seek to promote cooperative cataloging projects, with an emphasis on access to archival, manuscript, and other unique sources; some elements of interpretation and exhibition; scholarly library publications; bibliographical and publishing projects of interest to research libraries; and collection-level preservation/conservation work and research.
Small-scale digitizing is eligible for support when the process is part of a clearly defined and timely scholarly project that incorporates recognized standards for metadata production, for preservation, and for distribution. The Gladys Krieble Delmas Foundation does not support massive digitizing projects of a general nature.
Designed to support historical research on Venice and the former Venetian empire, and the study of contemporary Venetian society and culture, grants are awarded for independent research, for publications assistance, and for the support of institutions engaged in related research programs.
Grants to individuals are only provided via the Venetian Research Program.
Applications will be entertained for grants up to a maximum of $20,000 for a full academic year
