NEH Humanities Connections Planning Grants

The Humanities Connections program seeks to expand the role of the humanities in undergraduate education at two- and four-year institutions. Awards will support innovative curricular approaches that foster productive partnerships among humanities faculty and their counterparts in the social and natural sciences and in pre-service or professional programs in order to encourage and develop new integrative learning opportunities for students.

Funded at two levels, Planning and Implementation, the grants have four core features:

  1. integration of the subject matter, perspectives, and pedagogical approaches of two or more disciplines (with a minimum of one in and one outside of the humanities);
  2. collaboration between faculty from two or more separate departments or schools at one or more institutions;
  3. experiential learning as an intrinsic part of the curricular plan; and
  4. long-term institutional support for the proposed curriculum innovation(s).
