NEH Bridging Cultures Grant Program
The National Endowment for the Humanities offers grants for projects that advance the role of the humanities at a community college through curriculum and faculty development on the theme of Bridging Cultures. Funded projects will draw on sound humanities scholarship, engage participating faculty in shared readings of important humanities texts, involve humanities scholars with appropriate expertise, result in improvements in the quality of humanities instruction, and disseminate widely the results of their work. Projects must involve a partnership in the planning and implementation of the project between a community college or system and another educational or cultural institution, such as a college or university, museum, research library, or professional association. NEH expects to award seven to nine grants of up to $120,000 each. Interested applicants are encouraged to consult with a program officer about their proposals (firstname.lastname@example.org, 202-606-8380). Guidelines will be available in early May. The application deadline is August 27, 2013.
