Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA nonprofit organizations, government agencies, tribes, and IHEs to host humanities programming for K-12 teachers. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take up to one month to complete. The goal of the program is to offer professional development programs that convene K-12 educators from across the nation in order to deepen and enrich their understanding of a variety of topics in the humanities and enrich their capacity for effective scholarship and teaching.

The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) Division of Education Programs is accepting applications for the Institutes for Higher Education Faculty program. Most fundamentally, institutes:  

  • Allow immersive study of topics of significance to the humanities  
  • Foster new fields of study and/or revitalize existing areas of inquiry  
  • Reinvigorate teaching and increase intellectual impact in the classroom  
  • Build lasting communities that foster participants’ intellectual and professional collaboration  

They should:  

  • Ground the study in significant humanities texts and related resources  
  • Explore multiple approaches to the topic in a manner that is both rigorous and collegial  
  • Provide opportunities for deep and collaborative engagement with the topic  
  • Model excellent scholarship and teaching  
  • Consider how the topic engages recent developments in the scholarship, teaching, and curriculum of participants’ professional settings  
  • Reach the widest possible audience for whom the topic is relevant  

Institutes for K-12 Educators are awarded at two levels:

  • Level I: Open only to projects that are new or have not been previously funded by NEH. This level supports preparation for and execution of an institute, as well as moderate follow up and outreach.
  • Level II: Required of previously-funded projects and optional for first-time projects. In addition to Level I activities, this level requires a robust program of dissemination beyond the participant audience.
