NEH Announces $26 Million in New Grants

On August 8, 2007, the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) awarded more than $26 million in total grants and offers of matching funds for 159 diverse projects in the humanities. Included in these awards are funding for 26 applicants to host the We the People 2008 Landmarks of American History and Culture workshops. Among the Landmarks workshops, 20 have been developed for K-12 teachers and an additional six have been designed for community college faculty.

The NEH grants and matching offers come from six of the Endowment’s major program areas—challenge grants, education programs, federal/state partnership, preservation and access, public programs, and digital humanities. Scholars and institutions in 44 states, the District of Columbia and 5 U.S. territories received support from the NEH.
