Funding - DEADLINE :  
Public Humanities Project (NEH)


The Public Humanities Projects program supports projects that bring the ideas and insights of the humanities to life for general audiences through in-person programming. Projects must engage humanities scholarship to analyze significant themes in disciplines such as history, literature, ethics, and art history.

The program supports projects in three categories: Exhibitions (permanent, temporary, or traveling); interpretive programs at Historic Places; and Humanities Discussions related to “A More Perfect Union”: NEH Special Initiative Advancing Civic Education and Commemorating the Nation’s 250th Anniversary.

What’s new for 2020

  • The period of performance for Planning proposals is up to 24 months. The period of performance for Implementation proposals is up to 48 months.
  • If you are applying for the Implementation funding level, you may now request an additional $100,000 to create a two-year staff full-time position during a four-year period of performance (or $50,000 for a one-year period of performance, and a one-year full-time staff position) within your institution to work on the proposed project. These additional funds support full-time employment opportunities for recent graduates with an MA or PhD in the humanities. Applicants that wish to increase annual compensation above $50,000 for these positions must use their own funds to do so.
  • Humanities Discussions must be related to “A More Perfect Union:” NEH Special Initiative Advancing Civic Education and Commemorating the Nation’s 250th Anniversary.
  • Applications must be complete, must observe the specified page limits, and must be validated by under the correct funding opportunity number to be considered under this notice. Late, incomplete, or ineligible applications will not be reviewed.
