National Endowment for the Humanities

NEH is an independent federal agency created in 1965. Because democracy demands wisdom, NEH serves and strengthens our republic by promoting excellence in the humanities and conveying the lessons of history to all Americans. The Endowment accomplishes this mission by awarding grants for top-rated proposals examined by panels of independent, external reviewers.

NEH grants typically go to cultural institutions, such as museums, archives, libraries, colleges, universities, public television, and radio stations, and to individual scholars. The grants:

• strengthen teaching and learning in schools and colleges

• facilitate research and original scholarship

• provide opportunities for lifelong learning

• preserve and provide access to cultural and educational resources

• strengthen the institutional base of the humanities
