The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) announces Humanities Connections Grant Program
The Humanities Connections grant program seeks to expand the role of the humanities in undergraduate education at two- and four-year institutions. Grants will support innovative curricular approaches that foster productive partnerships among humanities faculty and their counterparts in the social and natural sciences and in pre-service or professional programs (such as business, engineering, health sciences, law, computer science, and other technology-driven fields).
There are two funding levels: (1) Planning and (2) Implementation.
Planning Grants (up to 12 months) support the interdisciplinary collaboration of faculty from two or more separate departments or schools (a minimum of one in and one outside of the humanities), with the goal of designing a new, coherent curricular program or initiative. Planning Grants provide up to $35,000 in funding.
Implementation grants (up to three years) support the interdisciplinary collaboration of faculty from two or more separate departments or schools (a minimum of one in and one outside of the humanities), with the implementation of a sustainable curricular program or initiative as the outcome. Implementation Grant provide up to $100,000 in funding.
The deadline for both programs is October 17, 2017. Please contact Research and Sponsored Programs if you have any questions about these programs or are interested in submitting a proposal.
