The National Endowment for the Humanities is currently inviting applications for its Public Humanities Projects with an aim to support projects that bring the ideas and insights of the humanities to life for general audiences. Projects must engage humanities scholarship to illuminate significant themes in disciplines such as history, literature, ethics, and art, or to address challenging issues in contemporary life.
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.
This grant program supports a variety of forms of audience engagement. Applications should follow the parameters set out below for one of the following three formats:
