Public Humanities Projects

Public Humanities Projects grants support projects that bring the ideas and insights of the humanities to life for general audiences.

Projects must engage humanities scholarship to analyze significant themes in disciplines such as history, literature, ethics, and art, or to address challenging

issues in contemporary life.

NEH encourages projects that involve members of the public in collaboration with humanities scholars or that invite contributions from the community in the development and delivery of humanities programming.

This grant program supports a variety of forms of audience engagement.

Applications should follow the parameters set out below for one of the following three formats:
• Community Conversations:
This format supports one- to three-year-long series of community-wide public discussions in which diverse residents creatively address community challenges, guided by the perspectives of the humanities.

• Exhibitions:
This format supports permanent exhibitions that will be on view for at least three years, or travelling exhibitions that will be available to public audiences in at least two venues in the United States (including the originating location).

• Historic Places:
This format supports the interpretation of historic sites, houses, neighborhoods, and regions, which might include living history presentations, guided tours, exhibitions, and public programs.

NEH encourages projects that explore humanities ideas through multiple formats.

Proposed projects may include complementary components that deepen an audience’s understanding of a subject:
for example, a museum exhibition might be accompanied by a website, mobile app, or discussion programs.

Your application must identify one primary format for your project and follow the application instructions for that format.
