Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA nonprofit IHEs that have PhD programs in the humanities to make transformative changes to humanities programs in order to increase career opportunities for doctoral candidates. January 13 is the deadline (optional) to submit a draft for review. This funding opportunity is intended to promote best practices on the part of the awardee institutions, and thereby to establish a new model for graduate education in the humanities.

Humanities knowledge and methods can make an even more substantial impact on society if students are able to translate what they learn in doctoral programs into a multitude of careers. Next Generation PhD Implementation Grants are designed to produce plans that will transform scholarly preparation in the humanities at the doctoral level. Students will be prepared to undertake various kinds of careers, and humanities PhD programs will increase their relevance for the twenty-first century.

NEH will support activities specific to each institution’s needs: these may include (but are not limited to) multi-departmental collaboration, transformations in curricula, modifications in stipend structures, altered formats for dissertations, commitment to collection of alumni career information and outcomes, partnerships with non-university entities, as well as a pledge to encourage doctoral students to explore and prepare for multiple career trajectories.
