28 AASLH Members Receive Over $9 Million in NEH Grants

The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) announced that it will award $79 million in grants for 290 humanities projects and programs this summer. “NEH grants help bring humanities experiences to Americans across the country,” said Chairman William D. Adams. “Our funding supports museums, libraries and cultural institutions, and the local state councils that create and sustain humanities programs in their communities. Through films, original research, and new intellectual insights, our grants strengthen the nation’s cultural fabric and identity.”

Institutions, scholars, and humanities organizations in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and U.S. territories will receive NEH support. Twenty-eight AASLH members were among the grant winners, and their total grants amount to over $9 million dollars. We congratulate them all on the hard work that led to these awards, and look forward to seeing the results of their endeavors.
