Grants to USA colleges and universities to enhance undergraduate humanities programs through creative curricular development and implementation. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete. The purpose of the program is to expand the role of the humanities in undergraduate education at two- and four-year institutions.

    The Humanities Connections program includes two categories: Planning and Implementation.

    Planning Grants may be used to:

    • Establish and convene a team to develop overall project goals and outcomes
    • Consult outside experts on curriculum design or experiential learning opportunities (such as individual or collaborative undergraduate research projects, or a structured experience with community-based, project-based, or site-based learning)
    • Organize seminars for faculty and administrators on substantive issues related to the success of the project
    • Coordinate focus or discussion groups around issues central to project rationale
    • Design potential new courses, instructional models, and pedagogies for development
    • Work with institutional leadership to outline long-range planning and sustainability

    Implementation awards may be used to:

    • Convene a core faculty team and develop working groups on issues central to project rationale
    • Engage outside experts on issues pertinent to project content, design, and sustainability
    • Develop, implement, assess, and refine curriculum (such as new courses, modules, and pathways) and instructional models for effective pedagogy
    • Develop and implement pilot projects and activities for student experiential learning (such as individual or collaborative undergraduate research projects, or a structured experience with community-based, project-based, or site-based learning)
    • Establish pilot projects and activities for experiential learning (such as individual or collaborative undergraduate research projects, or a structured experience with community-based, project-based, or site-based learning)
    • Create and implement outreach strategies to attract students to new educational opportunities
    • Conduct mid- and long-range feasibility studies
