Associate Professor Robert Ingram received an Ohio University Humanities Research Award and (with William J. Bulham of Lehigh University) funded a project entitled "Religion, the Enlightenment and the Paradox of Innovation" with monies from the Religion and Innovation in Human Affairs Program of the John Templeton Foundation and the Historical Society. Ingram additionally secured grants from the Charles Koch Charitable Foundation and the Apgar Foundation to fund his Ohio University-based George Washington Forum, which sponsors a guest speaker series and frequent scholarly conferences. Ingram also received a COFUND Senior Research Fellowship in FY 13 to serve as a scholar-in-residence at Durham University (UK) during FY 14.

Associate Professor Jaclyn Maxwell received contracts to create architectural drawings for the "Roman Peasant Project" excavation near Cinigiano, Italy, and to provide lectures on a tour of Greece and Turkey for the Smithsonian Institution Journeys program.
