NEH Announces Its Newest Round of Humanities Grants

The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) is providing $26.2 million in grants for 238 humanities projects across the U.S. The grants include funding for “a new permanent exhibition at the Carnegie Museum of Natural History in Pittsburgh on how the Nile River shaped ancient Egyptians’ ideas of life and death; provide for treatment and digitization of photo collections at Appalshop documenting Appalachia’s social, cultural, and economic history that were damaged by catastrophic flooding in Kentucky; and support archaeological research at the sites of two former boarding schools on the Blackfeet reservation in Montana.”

NEH notes, “Other funding will help develop an interdisciplinary undergraduate minor in health humanities at Florida Atlantic University and a new minor in data science and humanities at Old Dominion University. At the Medical College of Wisconsin, NEH funding will support a discussion program for military veterans focusing on the ways war memorials and poetry reflect the experiences of war.”

For more information and the full list of grants, read the press release.
