National Endowment for the Humanities

logo, national endowment for the humanities

National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) is the largest governmental funder of humanities programs in the U.S. Contracts, professional development opportunities, and preservation programs under the NEH umbrella support cultural institutions, libraries, museums, media, and educational organizations.

We the People is the NEH history program dedicated to encouraging and reinforcing knowledge about American history and culture.

Workshops for School Teachers are among the extensive professional development opportunities funded through NEH.

Edsitement serves as a gateway to humanities on the web. Under History and Social Studies, Edsitement links to K–12 lesson plans that are searchable by subject and grade level and are linked to primary source documents and supporting websites.

Picturing America, a grant opportunity, uses works of American art with narratives, lesson plans, and activities as the catalyst for history instruction.

The Office of Digital Humanities supports and explores digital scholarship and teaching.
