About the National Endowment for the Humanities
The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) is an independent federal agency established by Congress in 1965. Our mission is to support innovative and transformative humanities projects that strengthen American society and provide access to invaluable cultural resources.
Our Programs and Initiatives
Grants and Funding
At the NEH, we offer a wide range of grants and funding opportunities to nurture creativity, foster intellectual growth, and preserve our nation's cultural heritage. Our grants support projects in areas such as research, education, preservation, and public programs. Organizations and individuals across the country have benefited from our financial support, which has enabled the realization of impactful initiatives.
Education and Outreach
Education is at the heart of our mission. We believe in the power of the humanities to expand knowledge, promote critical thinking, and foster cultural appreciation. Through our educational programs, we strive to enhance teaching and learning experiences in schools, colleges, and universities nationwide. We provide resources, workshops, and online platforms that engage students, educators, and the general public in exploring various topics related to the humanities.
Preservation of our cultural heritage is crucial. We work closely with museums, libraries, archives, and historical organizations to ensure the conservation and accessibility of invaluable resources. Our initiatives include digitization projects, preservation grants, and support for cultural institutions to safeguard our shared history. By preserving our cultural treasures, we enable future generations to connect with the past and gain a deeper understanding of our collective identity.

Through our support for scholarly publications, fellowships, and collaborative research initiatives, we foster intellectual engagement and contribute to academic excellence in the humanities.
