Grant Description
Grants to USA and territories nonprofit organizations, government agencies, tribes, and IHEs to provide week-long culture and history workshops for K-12 educators. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take up to one month to complete. The purpose of this program is to enhance and strengthen humanities teaching at the K-12 level.

The Landmarks of American History and Culture program supports residential, virtual, and combined format projects that situate the study of topics and themes in K-12 humanities within sites, areas, or regions of historic and cultural significance. Projects aim to expand participants’ knowledge of and approaches to teaching about diverse histories, cultures, traditions, languages, and perspectives in the United States and its jurisdictions.

Landmarks supports a series of one-week residential, virtual, and combined format projects across the nation to enhance and strengthen how K-12 educators incorporate place-based teaching and learning in the humanities. Landmarks workshops offer participants:

  • Enhanced knowledge of content through humanistic inquiry, experiential learning, discussions, readings, lectures, and multimedia presentations
  • A variety of place-based learning activities, including, but not limited to, visits to museums, libraries, archives, monuments, memorials, national parks, historic homes and buildings, walking tours, and public performances
  • Access to essential source materials, including primary texts, documents, oral histories, artifacts, archival resources, and digital media materials
  • A community of inquiry that encourages dialogue and the exchange of ideas
  • Opportunities to examine and design implementation strategies; work with digital resources and tools that emphasize place-based teaching, learning, and research in the humanities; and collaborate on the creation of K-12 curricular materials
  • A team of humanities scholars, including faculty with significant K-12 experience, who contribute to all phases of the program

New For the 2022-2023 Cycle: 

  • Landmarks now offers two grant program options: One for K-12 educators and one for higher education faculty and humanities professionals.
  • Previously awarded projects are no longer required to change the focus of their program to apply again.

Ensure your SAM.gov and Grants.gov registrations and passwords are current. It may take up to one month to register with SAM.gov and Grants.gov. NEH encourages organizations with SAM registrations to check the validation of their UEI well in advance of the deadline to ensure that they are accurate, current, and active. Due to the recent transition from D-U-N-S® numbers to Unique Entity Identifiers in April 2022, the Federal Service Desk is currently experiencing delays with UEIs requiring validation. If your SAM registration is not active and current at the time of Grants.gov submission, NEH will reject your application.

You may submit multiple applications for separate and distinct projects under this notice.
