Evaluation Criteria for Research Programs

February 10, 2015 | By NEH Staff

Evaluation Criteria are a fundamental component in the NEH evaluation process. Reviewers at all stages use these criteria in their assessment of an application. Criteria are listed in the published Guidelines. Applicants are encouraged to read the Program Guidelines for the deadline they are considering. Guidelines, including Evaluation Criteria, may be revised from year to year.
