National Endowment for the Humanities Announces Bridging Cultures Forum and Workshop Grants

As part of its recently announced Bridging Cultures initiative, the National Endowment for the Humanities is inviting proposals to plan and implement a program consisting of a forum and workshop on one of two humanities themes — "Civility and Democracy" or "The Muslim World and the Humanities."

Project proposals for both program themes should consist of two elements — a forum that engages scholars and humanities practitioners in discussion among themselves and with a public audience; and a workshop at which humanities practitioners, scholars, and teachers collaborate to devise content, formats, training strategies, and education and dissemination methods for a nationwide or regional program that engages people in communities across the country in reflection on, and discussion of, the forum theme.

Successful applicants will be responsible for planning and implementing all aspects of the forum and workshop, including, at the program's outcome, a plan for a public program designed to engage a broad, diverse regional or national audience in discussion of the forum theme. Successful applicants will each be awarded a grant ranging from $100,000 to $250,000 in outright or matching funds. All forum and workshop programs should take place between October 1, 2010, and March 30, 2011.

Any U.S. nonprofit organization with 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status is eligible, as are state and local governmental agencies. Eligible institutions include but are not limited to public, academic, and research libraries, museums, disciplinary and professional associations, cultural institutions, state humanities councils, and institutions of higher learning.
