The NEH Enduring Questions grant program supports faculty members in the teaching and development of a new course that fosters intellectual community through the study of an enduring question. This question-driven course encourages undergraduates and teachers to grapple with a fundamental concern of human life addressed by the humanities, and to join together in a deep and sustained program of reading in order to encounter influential thinkers over the centuries and into the present day.
NEH has funded nearly 100 Enduring Questions grant projects since 2008. To learn more about the courses that grantees have developed, please click on the links below.
