NEH Grants and Fellowships Application Writing Workshop at UNL

Regency Suite, Nebraska Union (1400 R St.) | Thursday, Feb. 27, 2014 | 8 a.m.-12 p.m.

Workshop Overview

The National Endowment for the Humanities and UNL are partnering to host a grants and fellowships application writing workshop for faculty, staff and students and other individuals interested in pursuing grant funding for humanities programs on Thursday, Feb. 27, 2014. The workshop, which is free and open to the public, will be held in the Regency Suite at the Nebraska Union, 1400 R St. UNL’s College of Arts and Sciences and Office of Research and Economic Development are co-hosting the event.

NEH – one of the nation’s largest humanities funders – offers a range of grant opportunities developed to advance knowledge in all humanities fields, including:

  • research grants for individuals and groups of collaborators;
  • education grants in the form of summer seminars and institutes to promote research and advanced training for teachers at the secondary and postsecondary levels;
  • preservation and access grants to conserve and make available important humanities collections;
  • public programs awards that support exhibitions and documentaries aimed at the general public;
  • challenge grants that provide matching funds for building and endowment projects; and
  • opportunities in the digital humanities involving the application of technology to humanities topics.


NEH grants typically are awarded to cultural institutions, such as museums, archives, libraries, colleges, universities, public television and radio stations and individual scholars.

The workshop will include an overview of NEH grant programs and special initiatives, feature information about NEH grant and fellowship application writing strategies, and demystify the application review process. Participants also will have the opportunity to participate in a question and answer session with the workshop presenter Stefanie Walker, a senior program officer in the NEH Division of Research Programs.
