NEH America's Media Makers Production & Development Grants

Grants for America’s Media Makers support projects in the humanities that explore stories, ideas, and beliefs in order to deepen our understanding of our lives and our world. Grants for America’s Media Makers should encourage dialogue, discussion, and civic engagement, and they should foster learning among people of all ages.

NEH offers two categories of grants for media projects, development grants and production grants.
  • Development grants enable media producers to collaborate with scholars to develop humanities content and format and to prepare programs for production.
  • Production grants support the preparation of a program for distribution.
Applications that respond to NEH’s new Bridging Cultures initiative are welcome. Such projects could focus on cultures internationally, or within the United States. International projects might seek to enlarge Americans’ understanding of other places and times, as well as other perspectives and intellectual traditions.

Applications may be submitted for any phase of a project. Applicants are not required to obtain a development grant before applying for a production grant. Applicants may not, however, submit multiple applications for the same project at the same deadline.

Deadline: January 12, 2011 (projects beginning October 2011)

The Bridging Cultures through Film: International Topics initiative—a separate grant program—supports documentary films that examine international and transnational themes in the humanities through documentary films. These projects are meant to spark Americans’ engagement with the broader world by exploring one or more countries and cultures outside of the United States.
