Funding opportunities: Implementation and planning grants for museums, libraries and cultural organi


Receipt Deadline January 14, 2015 for Projects Beginning August 2015

Projects must be analytical and deeply grounded in humanities scholarship in a discipline such as history, religion, anthropology, jurisprudence, or art history. NEH is a national funding agency, so the projects we support must demonstrate the potential to attract a broad, general audience. We welcome humanities projects tailored to particular groups, such as families, youth (including K-12 students), teachers, seniors, at-risk communities, and veterans, but they should also strive to cultivate a more inclusive audience.

Museums, Libraries, and Cultural Organizations grants provide support for museums, libraries, historic places, and other organizations that produce public programs in the humanities.

Implementation grants support the following formats:

  1. exhibitions at museums, libraries, and other venues;

  2. interpretations of historic places, sites, or regions;

  3. book/film discussion programs; living history presentations; other face-to-face programs at libraries, community centers, and other public venues; and

  4. interpretive websites, mobile applications, games, and other digital formats.

Implementation grants support final scholarly research and consultation, design development, production, and installation of a project for presentation to the public. Please click here for more information or to download the implementation grant application package.

Planning grants support the following formats:

  1. exhibitions at museums, libraries, and other venues;

  2. interpretations of historic places, sites, or regions; and

  3. book/film discussion programs; living history presentations; and other face-to-face programs at libraries, community centers, and other public venues.

NEH encourages projects that explore humanities ideas through multiple formats. Proposed projects might include complementary components that deepen an audience’s understanding of a subject: for example, a museum exhibition might be accompanied by a website, mobile app, or discussion programs.

Planning grants support the early stages of project development, including consultation with scholars, refinement of humanities themes, preliminary design, testing, and audience evaluation. Please click here for more information or to download the planning grant application package.
