The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) recently announced $29 million in grant awards and offers for 184 humanities projects.
New funding supports a wide variety of projects nationwide, including professional development opportunities for educators at all levels, advancement of humanities disciplines through the use of technology, and collaboration between U.S. and U.K. scholars related to the development of digital humanities projects. Additionally, NEH awarded grants for media, library, and museum programming for public audiences at local, national, and historic sites, programming offered by state humanities councils, as well as Challenge Grants that support humanities activities that examine American history.
This award cycle, institutions in 45 states, the District of Columbia, and five U.S. territories will receive NEH support. A complete state-by-state listing of grants and offers of matching funds is available below:
NEH awards and offers announced today come from six program areas—Challenge Grants, Education Programs, Digital Humanities, Preservation and Access, and Public Programs, and the Endowment’s Federal/State Partnership which supports the 56 state and jurisdictional humanities councils. Selected projects have received a We the People designation for their efforts to strengthen the teaching, study, and understanding of American history and culture.
