Humanities Initiatives at Colleges and Universities strengthen the teaching and study of the humanities at institutions of higher education by developing new humanities programs, resources (including those in digital format), or courses, or by enhancing existing ones.
Projects must be organized around a core topic or set of themes drawn from such areas of study in the humanities as history, philosophy, religion, literature, and composition and writing skills.
NEH welcomes applications for projects that are modest in scope, duration, and budget, as well as applications for expansive, long-term projects.
The recorded webinar below provides examples and explanation in support of the Notice of Funding Opportunity guidelines for the 2022 funding cycle.
