The program supports a series of one-week, residence-based workshops for a national audience of K-12 educators. The workshops use historic sites to address central themes and issues in American history, government, literature, art and music.
The program supports faculty development programs in the humanities for K-12 teachers. The seminars and institutes may be as short as one week or as long as four weeks for participants to explore a variety of topics relevant to K-12 or undergraduate education in the humanities.
The program provides grants to help small and mid-sized institutions improve their ability to preserve and care for their significant humanities collections. These may include special collections of books and journals, archives and manuscripts, prints and photographs, moving images, sound recordings, architectural and cartographic records, decorative and fine art objects, textiles, archaeological and ethnographic artifacts, furniture, historical objects and digital materials. Small and mid-sized institutions that have never received an NEH grant are especially encouraged to apply.
The program provides grants in published prose writers to enable the recipients to set aside time for writing, research, travel and general career advancement.
The program supports the creation of well-researched books in the humanities intended to reach a broad readership. The initiative encourages scholarship that will be of broad interest and have lasting impact. Such scholarship might present a narrative history, tell the stories of important individuals, analyze significant texts, provide a synthesis of ideas, revive interest in a neglected subject or examine the latest thinking on a topic.
The program preserves large and diverse holdings of humanities materials for future generations. Funds go for preventive conservation measures that mitigate deterioration and prolong the useful life of collections.
The program is creating a national digital resource of historically significant newspapers published between 1690 and 1963, from all states and U.S. territories. This free, searchable database is maintained by the Library of Congress. Approximately 87% of applicants receive an award.
The program supports projects that bring the ideas and insights of the humanities to life for general audiences. Projects must engage humanities scholarship to analyze significant themes in disciplines, such as history, literature, ethics, and art, or to address challenging issues in contemporary life.
These grants support multimedia humanities projects. The following formats are eligible: interactive digital media; film and television projects; and radio projects. Interactive digital media may be websites, games, mobile applications, virtual environments, streaming video, and podcasts.
