The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) is accepting applications for the Humanities Connections program. The purpose of this program is to expand the role of the humanities in undergraduate education at two- and four-year institutions.
Awards support innovative curricular approaches that foster partnerships among humanities faculty and their counterparts in the social and natural sciences and in pre-service or professional programs (such as business, engineering, health sciences, law, computer science, and other technology-driven fields), in order to encourage and develop new integrative learning opportunities for students.
Humanities Connections projects must include:
- Substantive and purposeful integration of the subject matter, perspectives, and pedagogical approaches of two or more disciplines (with a minimum of one in and one outside of the humanities)
- Collaboration between faculty from two or more departments or schools at one or more institutions
- Experiential learning as an intrinsic part of the proposed curriculum
- Long-term institutional support for the proposed curriculum innovation(s)
The NEH will award up to $35,000 for planning grants and up to $150,000 for implementation grants. Deadline for submission is September 14, 2021.
