"NEH Humanities Initiatives at Community Colleges are intended to strengthen the teaching and study of the humanities in subjects such as history, philosophy, and literature. These grants may be used to enhance existing humanities programs, resources, or courses, or to develop new ones. NEH Humanities Initiatives may:

  • create opportunities for faculty members to study together, in order to improve their capacity to teach the humanities;
  • support new humanities programs (which may include but are not limited to new humanities minors, first-year seminars, and capstone courses), and enhance existing ones;
  • support humanities contributions to professional training (in such fields as business, law, economics, technology, and nursing and medicine);
  • develop bridge programs for at-risk and nontraditional students;
  • help institutions take advantage of humanities resources, especially in the digital humanities; and
  • support collaborative projects in the humanities between the applicant institution and another institution, such as a college or university, a school or school system, a museum or library, or a historical or cultural society.

Each project must be organized around a core topic or set of themes."
