NEH Humanities Initiatives at Hispanic-Serving Institutions

Deadline: Tuesday, May 9, 2023; Optional draft due March 21, 2023

Funding Range:  Up to $150,000

ABOUT: The Humanities Initiatives at Hispanic-Serving Institutions program strengthens the teaching and study of the humanities at institutions of higher education by developing new or enhancing existing programs, resources (including those in digital format), or courses that explore, interpret, and preserve the diversity of human cultures, ideas, and practices, past and present. 

Projects must address a core topic or set of themes drawn from humanities areas such as history, philosophy, religion, literature, or humanities-informed composition and writing skills. NEH welcomes applications for projects that are modest in scope, duration, and budget, as well as applications for expansive, long-term projects. Projects may, but need not be, related to the cultural identity of the applicant institution. For example, a Hispanic-Serving Institution could submit a proposal on ancient Greek drama.

The Humanities Initiatives programs support activities such as: curriculum development, student enrichment, faculty development, and partnerships.

APPLY: For a detailed program description, please see the solicitation attached in the portal announcement, or follow the link to the NEH’s Humanities Initiatives at Hispanic-Serving Institutions program page.

NOTE: If you are interested in applying or have any questions, please contact our Pre-Award Specialists Pia Gabriel at, Kaz Wegmuller at, or Jocelyne Takatsuno at, before April  9, 2023.
