The National Endowment for the Humanities is accepting applications for Humanities Connection Grants.  Grants of up to $100,000 are available for programs lasting between eighteen and thirty-six months, and must start no later than September 2017.  The deadline is for the submission of application is October 5, 2016 (for projects beginning May 2017).

Humanities Connections grants seek to expand the role of the humanities in the undergraduate curriculum, offering students in all academic fields new opportunities to develop the intellectual skills and habits of mind that the humanities cultivate. Grant projects focus on connecting the resources and perspectives of the humanities to students’ broader educational and professional goals, regardless of their path of study. Through this new grant program, NEH invites proposals that reflect innovative and imaginative approaches to preparing students for their roles as engaged citizens and productive professionals in a rapidly changing and interdependent world.
