The humanities disciplines, according to the NEH, include but are not limited “to the study and interpretation of language, both modern and classical; literature; history; jurisprudence; philosophy; archeology; comparative religion; ethics; the history, criticism and theory of the arts; and those aspects of the social sciences which have humanistic content and employ humanistic methods.”
As led by the organization’s mission and charter, the primary goal is to increase public access to high-quality humanities programming.

To be competitive, such proposals should show strong community collaboration, a well-defined outreach and publicity plan, and stated audience goals.
