FYI: Deadline for Applications to NEH


Author: haguera

FYI Body: The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) is a grant-making agency
of the U.S. federal government that support projects in the humanities.
Eligible applicants are: U.S. nonprofit associations, institutions, and
organizations, as well as U.S. citizens and foreign nationals who have
been legal residents in the United States for a period of at least the
three years immediately preceding the submission of the application.

NEH's Division of Preservation and Access supports projects that will
create, preserve and increase the availability of resources importan
for research, education, and public programming in the humanities.
Support may be sought to preserve the intellectual content and aid
bibliographic control of collections; to compile bibliographies,
descriptive catalogs, and guides to cultural holdings; to create
dictionaries, encyclopedias, databases, and other types of research
tools and reference works; and to stabilize material culture
collections through the appropriate housing and storing of objects,
improved environmental control, and the installation of security,
lighting, and fire-prevention systems. Applications may also be
submitted for national and regional education and training projects,
regional preservation field service programs, and research and
demonstration projects that are intended to enhance institutional
practice and the use of technology for preservation and access.

Projects may encompass collections of books, journals, newspapers,
manuscript and archival materials, maps, still and moving images,
sound recordings, and objects of material culture held by libraries,
archives, museums, historical organizations, and other repositories.

The Division has a single, annual DEADLINE for applications, JULY 1.
Final decisions will be announced the following March. Guidelines
and instructions can be downloaded from the NEH Web site:
