Agency Spotlight
National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH)

NEH is an independent grant-making agency of the U.S. government dedicated to supporting research, education, preservation, and public programs in the humanities. This is an excellent funding source for CLA faculty. CLA has been very successful in securing NEH grant awards, and the GFS Team is dedicated to assisting faculty in preparing applications.

Regularly check the NEH website for funding opportunities and deadlines.
