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.

Pre-Application Information:

Applicants are strongly encouraged to contact program officers, who can offer advice about preparing the proposal and can review draft proposals. Although draft proposals are not required, potential applicants are strongly encouraged to take advantage of this preliminary review. Staff comments on draft proposals are not part of the formal review process and have no bearing on the final outcome of the application.

To ensure timely review, applicants may submit a preliminary draft proposal no later than January 13, 2016. NEH regrets that drafts submitted after this date cannot be reviewed. This preliminary draft should include the full narrative section of the application and the proposed budget; it may be sent directly by email attachment to challenge@neh.gov.

NEH strongly suggests that you submit your application no later than 5:00 PM ET on the day of the deadline. Doing so will leave you time to contact the Grants.gov help desk for support, should you encounter a technical problem of some kind.

Required 1:1 matching or cost-shared funds.
