Grants are available to USA community colleges, government agencies, and non-profits for humanities projects that explore the ways other cultures have impacted American society. Drafts submitted at least five weeks before the deadline will be reviewed by program staff. Funds can be used to enhance existing humanities programs, develop new ones, or prepare the foundation for future projects.
Programs must be conducted in coordination with another institution with appropriate resources, such as a college or university, museum, research library, or professional association.
NEH Bridging Cultures at Community Colleges grants:
* Create opportunities for community college faculty members to study together while improving their capacity to teach the humanities;
* Enhance or develop areas of need in an institution’s humanities programs; and
* Give community college faculty access to humanities resources through partnerships with other institutions with appropriate resources.
Projects must focus on the theme of Bridging Cultures. This agency-wide initiative encourages exploration of the ways in which cultures from around the globe, as well as the myriad subcultures within America’s borders, have influenced American society. With the aim of revitalizing intellectual and civic life through the humanities, NEH welcomes proposals that enhance understanding of diverse countries, peoples, and cultural and intellectual traditions worldwide.
Projects must draw on sound humanities scholarship related to the theme of Bridging Cultures, engage participating faculty in shared readings of important humanities texts, involve humanities scholars with appropriate expertise, improve the quality of humanities course offerings at a community college or community college system, and widely disseminate their results.
