Subject: Deadline for Applications to NEH (Preservation and Access)

 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 important 
 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:
 A list of recent awards is also available at that site under "What's 
 New". To obtain a print version of the Guidelines or to address a 
 question to the NEH staff, e-mail us at <>.
