Planning Grants are used to refine the content and interpretive approach of projects prior to implementation. Applicants should have already identified the appropriate humanities content of their projects and consulted with scholars and programming advisors.
Public humanities programs promote lifelong learning in history, literature, comparative religion, philosophy, and other fields of the humanities for broad public audiences. They go beyond the presentation of factual information and encourage thought and conversation about humanities ideas and questions. Projects that offer new insights into familiar subjects and use innovative formats and non-traditional ways of engaging audiences are welcome, as are projects with interdisciplinary perspectives.
For more information about this grant program, contact NEH's Division of Public Programs at 202-606-8269 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
