NEH Grant Opportunity for Community Colleges

NEH Humanities Initiatives at Community Colleges

The National Endowment for the Humanities will award grants of up to $100,000 for projects that strengthen the teaching and study of the humanities at community colleges in subjects such as history, philosophy, and literature.

These grants may be used to enhance existing humanities programs, resources, or courses, or to develop new ones.

Humanities Initiatives projects may:

• create opportunities for faculty members to study together, in order to improve their capacity to teach the humanities;

• support new humanities programs (which may include but are not limited to new humanities minors, first-year seminars, and capstone courses), and enhance existing ones;

• support humanities contributions to professional training (in such fields as business, law, economics, technology, and nursing and medicine);

• develop bridge programs for at-risk and nontraditional students;

• help institutions take advantage of humanities resources, especially in digital humanities; and

• support collaborative projects in the humanities between the applicant institution and another institution, such as a college or university, a school or school system, a museum or library, or a historical or cultural society.

Application guidelines and resources are available at www.neh.gov/grants/education/humanities-initiatives-community-colleges.

NEH offers assistance to prospective applicants in formulating and preparing proposals. For more information, contact us at 202-606-8471 or hi@neh.gov.
