The U.S. National Endowment for the Humanities wants to reach those it hasn't
before. If you're untouched by NEH and meet the qualifications below, you
might inquire. - Allan Metcalf
EXTENDING THE REACH INITIATIVE UP AND RUNNING
Extending the Reach, a new Endowment initiative, seeks applications from
humanities organizations in states that have not benefited as fully as
others from the Endowment's programs. The initiative also seeks
applications from historically black, Hispanic-serving, and tribal colleges
and universities nationwide. Fourteen states (Alabama, Alaska, Florida,
Idaho, Louisiana, Missouri, Montana, Nevada, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma,
Texas, Washington, and Wyoming) and one U.S. territory (Puerto Rico) are the
designated Extending the Reach areas. Eligible institutions and individual
scholars in these jurisdictions who have never before received an NEH grant
are especially encouraged to apply.
Extending the Reach program descriptions, application guidelines, and
contact information are now online at
http://www.neh.gov/grants/extending.html. In the designated states and
Puerto Rico, Humanities Scholar-in-Residence Grants (application deadline:
April 3) are available for middle and high schools seeking to improve their
humanities curricula; Consultation Grants (application deadline: May 1) are
available for museums, historical societies, and other cultural
organizations seeking to enhance their public humanities programs; and
Preservation Assistance Grants (application deadline: April 3) are available
for libraries, archives, museums, and historical societies seeking to
improve care of their humanities collections.
For historically black, Hispanic-serving, and tribal colleges and
universities nationwide, Faculty Research Grants (application deadline:
April 10) are available for professors, and Institutional Grants
(application deadline: June 1) are available to develop programs and
strengthen institutional resources.
The Extending the Reach initiative was launched last November with the
awarding of grants to the 14 state humanities councils (see
http://www.neh.gov/grants/awards/model99.html.) Each of these councils
received $20,000 to develop a humanities project with at least two partner
institutions that can serve as a model for collaborative work in the
that announcement comes from a monthly e-mail newsletter that anyone can get.
