Consultation grants help museums, libraries, historical organizations, or community organizations develop a new public humanities project or chart a new interpretive direction of an existing program. They support the costs of confering with a team of advisors to help identify key humanities themes and questions during the early stages of a project's development.
Public humanities programs promote lifelong learning for broad public audiences in fields such as history, literature, comparative religion, and philosophy, and other fields of the humanities. They go beyond the presentation of factual information to encourage thought and conversation about humanities ideas and questions. Projects that offer new insights into familiar subjects and use innovative formats and non-traditional ways of engaging audiences are welcome, as are projects with interdisciplinary perspectives. Organizations that have never received an NEH grant are encouraged to apply.
For more information about this grant program, contact the staff of NEH's Division of Public Programs at 202-606-8267 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
