NEH Offers New Enduring Questions Grants

The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) has released a solicitation for the new round of Enduring Questions grants. The grants offer funding to faculty to develop new courses that will encourage undergraduates and teachers to use the humanities to grapple with a fundamental concern of human life. Through a deep and sustained program of reading, students will encounter influential thinkers from across previous centuries to the present day.

In its last five annual competitions, the Enduring Questions program received approximately 193 applications per year. The program made an average of nineteen awards per year, for a funding ratio of 10 percent. Award descriptions from previous grantees can be found here, including examples from GRC members: University of North Carolina, Charlotte; Wheaton College; Cheyney University of Pennsylvania; State University of New York, The College at Brockport; and Saginaw Valley State University.

Applications are due by September 12, 2013 for awards of up to $38,000. The award amount is dependent on the number of project directors indicated in the application. The grant period may last between 18 and 36 months.

If you are interested in applying for this grant please contact the Sponsored Programs Office at 285-1600 or spo@bsu.edu or your area proposal manager.
