Grants to USA nonprofit organizations, government agencies, and tribes to support fellowships that facilitate quality research and advanced study. Required registrations may take several weeks to complete. Funding is intended to support institutions that provide fellowships devoted to advanced study and research in the humanities in the United States and abroad, foster communities of intellectual exchange among participating scholars, and provide access to resources that might otherwise not be available to the participating scholars.
As the nation approaches its 250th anniversary in 2026, NEH encourages projects that promote a deeper understanding of American history and culture and that advance civic education and knowledge of our core principles of government. The agency-wide “A More Perfect Union” initiative will help Americans better understand the world’s oldest constitutional democracy and how our founding ideals are met in a modern, pluralistic society. For more information, see https://www.neh.gov/250.
NEH welcomes consideration of diverse topics in American history, from Native American culture to rural life to the rise of the industrial city, from the Civil War to the Cold War to the Civil Rights movement, etc. Acceptable projects are those that examine foundational documents in U.S. history, as well as projects that examine historical objects, places, traditions, events, and individuals who collectively shaped our states and nation. Applications about the contributions of underrepresented communities are highly encouraged.
