Grant and Fellowship Opportunities
National Endowment for the Humanities Collaborative Research Grants
NEH’s Collaborative Research Program funds projects involving two or more scholars, allowing for both interdisciplinary and single-field projects. Collaborators may be from different or the same institution(s), and the program aims to encourage “projects that incorporate multiple points of view and pursue new avenues of inquiry in the humanities.”
The maximum award amount is up to $250,000, and the period of performance is up to 3 years—both depending on the funding category.

The program supports both part- and full-time activities during the one- to three-year performance period for groups of at least two scholars working collaboratively on the project.
The maximum award amount is up to $300,000 in outright funds, with a potential total award of up to $450,000 if applicant requests at least $150,000 in matching funds.

National Endowment for the Humanities Public Scholars Program
NEH’s Public Scholars Program offers grants to “individual authors for research, writing, travel, and other activities leading to the creation and publication of well-researched nonfiction books in the humanities written for the broad public.” No academic affiliation or advanced degree is required for the application in order to encourage non-academic writers to engage with the humanities in their work and for academic scholars to communicate the significance of their research to a broad readership.
The maximum award amount is up to $5,000 per month throughout a period of performance of six months to one year.
