Grant Description
Grants to USA and territories nonprofit organizations, agencies, IHEs, and tribal governments to host humanities programming for higher education faculty members. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take up to one month to complete. Funding is intended for professional development programs that convene higher education faculty from across the nation in order to deepen and enrich their understanding of a variety of topics in the humanities and enrich their capacity for effective scholarship and teaching.

Most fundamentally, institutes:  

  • Allow immersive study of topics of significance to the humanities  
  • Foster new fields of study and/or revitalize existing areas of inquiry  
  • Strengthen humanities teaching and learning in the classroom
  • Build lasting communities that foster participants’ intellectual and professional collaboration  

Institutes should: 

  • Ground the study in significant humanities texts and related resources
  • Explore multiple, rigorous approaches to the topic
  • Consider how the topic engages recent developments in the scholarship, teaching, and curricula of participants’ professional settings
  • Provide opportunities for deep and collaborative engagement with the topic
  • Model excellent scholarship, teaching, and collegial dialogue
  • Reach the widest possible audience for whom the topic is relevant
