National Endowment for the Humanities: Seeking Applications for Public Humanities Projects

Deadline: 29 August 2018

The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) is seeking applications for its “Public Humanities Projects” that bring ideas and insights of the humanities to life for general audiences through in-person programming.

Projects must engage humanities scholarship to analyze significant themes in disciplines such as history, literature, ethics, and art history. NEH encourages projects that involve members of the public in collaboration with humanities scholars or that invite contributions from the community in the development and delivery of humanities programming.
