The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) has released a funding opportunity announcement for Programming Grants to Accompany NEH on the Road Exhibitions. The grant program is designed to support ancillary public humanities programs as a way to supplement the NEH on the Road traveling exhibitions, NEH said.
According to the announcement, proposals should involve projects such as:
- reading and discussion programs;
- film discussion programs;
- Chautauqua presentations by scholars;
- family programs; and
- exhibition tours, as well as other appropriate formats that will reach the public.
NEH said successful applicants will receive an award of up to $1,000 for a project of up to three months in length.
Eligible applicants are nonprofit organizations that have confirmed a booking at one of the NEH on the Road Exhibitions through the Mid-America Arts Alliance.
The deadlines to apply are May 10, 2017; Sept. 13, 2017; and Dec. 27, 2017.
NEH on the Road Exhibitions are meant for the general public as a way to share stories about what it means to be American, according to the program website. Exhibitions are usually held in small to midsized museums, libraries, schools and universities throughout the country, NEH said.
