NEH Awards $27.6 Million in New Funding

The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) recently announced that 222 successful applicants would receive $27.6 million in awards and offers for a wide-range of projects in the humanities.

The funding will help institutions improve and secure long-term support for their humanities programs and resources; enrich humanities education; support educators’ professional development; and help scholars use digital tools to enhance scholarship and make humanities resources more accessible. Funding also will provide high-quality media, library, and museum programming for public audiences at local, national, and historic sites; and will support state humanities council programs exploring significant events and themes in American history.

This award cycle, institutions and individuals in 48 states, the District of Columbia and three U.S. territories received support from the NEH. A complete state-by-state listing of total grants and offers of matching funds is available below:

Alaska – Kentucky
Louisiana – New York
North Carolina – Wyoming

The NEH grants announced today come from three of the Endowment’s major program areas—Challenge Grants, Education Programs, and Public Programs—as well as special grant programs offered through the new Office of Digital Humanities. Awards were also made to We the People Project Grants for State Humanities Councils offered through NEH’s Federal/State Partnership. We the People grants help strengthen the teaching, study, and understanding of American history and culture.
