Funding Opportunities: National Endowment for the Humanities’ Division of Education Grants

October 24, 2023

The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) is one of the largest funders of humanities programs in the US. NEH 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, and strengthen the institutional base of the humanities.


ABOUT: The NEH’s Division of Education Programs supports humanities education through programs aimed primarily at program and curriculum development, and through professional development opportunities for K-12 and higher education faculty. 

The division has several grant programs to support broad institutional endeavors. Community colleges, Historically Black colleges and universities, tribal colleges and universities, and Hispanic-serving institutions receive grants to enhance the humanities content of existing programs, develop new programs, or lay the foundation for more extensive endeavors. The division also supports creative, integrative, collaborative curricular projects at two- and four-year post-secondary institutions between the humanities, and STEM, pre-professional, and professional programs in law, the health sciences, etc. Finally, the division’s veterans-centered program supports institutions interested in designing and implementing discussions programs that explore the experiences of war and military service through the examination of humanities texts and other resources.
