Grant Description

NEH Humanities Initiatives at Historically Black Colleges and Universities, Hispanic-Serving Institutions, and Tribal Colleges and Universities are intended to strengthen the teaching and study of the humanities, in subjects such as history, philosophy, literature, religion, and the interpretation of the arts. These grants may be used to enhance existing humanities programs, resources, or courses, or to develop new ones. Applicants are encouraged to draw on the knowledge of outside scholars who would contribute expertise and fresh insights to the project. Each project must be organized around a core topic or set of themes. NEH Humanities Initiatives 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 the 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.
