The NEH Office of Data and Evaluation (ODE) seeks input from all members of the public, including humanities practitioners and students, on a new grant program.  

This new program will support studies investigating the value, impact, and well-being of the humanities in the United States. The program is scheduled to launch in fiscal year 2025.

This new funding opportunity responds to calls from within the humanities community for more robust data and analysis relating to the health of humanities professions and the impact of the humanities on civic life.  

For the purposes of this grant program, the humanities include the study and interpretation of human experience and the arts and involve a wide range of humanities organizations and activities, from research universities to libraries, historical societies, and community organizations; from peer-reviewed publications to undergraduate courses, podcasts, and book clubs. View NEH’s definition of the humanities here. 

Activities to be funded under this program may include planning meetings, quantitative and qualitative data collection, data classification, data analysis, and more.  

Your feedback will help us craft this new grant program by highlighting the most pressing needs and topics in the field. Let us know what matters to you by clicking the link below.
