Overview: Federal agencies support game faculty in a wide variety of work. Funded projects range in focus from understanding history to inventing technology, and from game preservation to interdisciplinary collaboration. In this session, representatives from two agencies, the National Science Foundation and the National Endowment for the Humanities, will each give "micro talks" covering two major topics. First, each will share illustrative examples of ways their agencies are already working with game faculty and students. Second, each will discuss some of the things their agencies care about, and are looking for, in terms of games-oriented proposals. In addition, a faculty member will share insights from being part of funded game-focused projects, and project selection, with additional agencies, including the National Endowment for the Arts and the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
