The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) announced that it will award $39.3 million in grants for 245 humanities projects and programs this summer. “NEH grants ensure that Americans around the country have the opportunity to engage with our shared cultural heritage,” said NEH Acting Chairman Jon Parrish Peede. “From traveling exhibitions and teacher workshops to efforts to preserve local history, these projects demonstrate the power of the humanities to build connections, stimulate discovery, and contribute to vibrant communities.”

Forty-one 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.
