This month, the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) announced that it will award $43.1 million in grants for 218 humanities projects. “From nationally broadcast documentaries to summer workshops for high school teachers, the projects receiving funding today strengthen and sustain the cultural life of our nation and its citizens,” said NEH Chairman Jon Parrish Peede.

This round of funding, NEH’s third and last for fiscal year 2018, will support vital research, education, preservation, and public programs in the humanities. These peer-reviewed grants were awarded in addition to $47 million in annual operating support provided to the national network of state and local humanities councils during fiscal year 2018.

Thirty-three AASLH members were among the grant winners, and their total grants amount to over $6 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.
