The internal deadline for NEH Humanities Access Grant applications is March 29, 2017. More information on grant requirements or the application process can be found on the IU Research website.
Humanities Access grants help support capacity building for humanities programs that benefit one or more of the following groups: youth, communities of color, and economically disadvantaged populations. Humanities Access grants establish or augment term endowments (that is, endowments whose funds are entirely expended over the course of a set time period) to provide funding for existing programs at institutions such as public libraries, local and regional museums, historical societies, community colleges, HBCUs and tribal colleges, Hispanic-serving institutions, archival repositories, and other cultural organizations. Humanities Access grants are intended to seed longer-term endowment-building efforts.
Programs supported by Humanities Access grants might include, for example, a summer project for teens at a local historical society; internships for Native American students at a tribal museum; or a Clemente course at a homeless shelter organized by a community college.
