The Division of Preservation and Access of the National Endowment for the Humanities will be accepting applications for grants in Humanities Collections and Resources. These grants support projects to preserve and create intellectual access to such collections as books, journals, manuscript and archival materials, maps, still and moving images, sound recordings, art, and objects of material culture. Awards also support the creation of reference materials, online resources, and research tools of major importance to the humanities.
  • The application receipt deadline this year is July 31, 2008.
  • Research and Development applications are being accepted and should be identified as such and submitted to the July 31 deadline for Humanities Collections and Resources.
  • Projects proposing to unify, integrate, or aggregate humanities collections and resources are strongly encouraged.
  • Long-term projects without a plan to sustain the resources created by the project may allocate up to $50,000 of their request for consultants' fees or other costs associated with developing a sustainability plan.

The new guidelines, which include sample proposal narratives, can be found at http://www.neh.gov/grants/guidelines/Collections_and_Resources.html. The application receipt deadline of July 31 is for projects beginning May 2009. All applications to NEH must be submitted through Grants.gov, using new Acrobat forms. This requires the use of Adobe Acrobat Reader 8.1.1 or 8.1.2. See the application guidelines for details. Prospective applicants seeking further information are encouraged to contact the Division at 202-606-8570 or Program staff will read draft proposals submitted six weeks before the deadline.
