NEH Grants Announced; Humanities Council To Meet

The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) recently announced the awarding of $16.7 million in grants, or offers of matching funds, to 182 applicants. Fifty-four of the grants are designated as We the People projects designed to increase the teaching and study of American history and culture.

NEH has also announced that the National Council on the Humanities will meet at its Washington headquarters on May 8-9, 2007. Parts of the morning sessions are open both days, but the majority of the meetings are closed to the public since the Council will be considering grant applications.
