National Endowment for the Humanities
USA United States of America
Consultation Grants from the National Endowment for the Humanities support
the development of public humanities programs. These grants will be awarded
in the early stages of a project to allow collaboration with scholars and other advisers who can help to develop or deepen the project's humanities
themes and content. Competition is open to museums, historic sites, public
television and radio stations, independent media producers, libraries, and
other non-profit organizations in the United States.
Consultants may include academic specialists, film or radio producers,
museum curators or educators, librarians or others who could help to 1)
establish a firmer humanities basis for a project by incorporating relevant
scholarship, 2) refine a project's general format and design for
presentation to public audiences, and 3) identify other key advisers and
programming partners who could assist in a project's on-going development.
Consultants may be drawn from local, regional or national institutions such as colleges, universities, community colleges, museums, historical
societies, and professional organizations.
The maximum award will be $10,000.
Preference will be given to first-time grant recipients.
Examples of situations in which a Consultation Grant might be helpful:
* A historic site wants to broaden its local focus by exploring larger
>themes in the history of the area or region. The staff needs to consult
with historians and professionals from other historic houses and museums to
help shape a new interpretation for the public.
* A museum is interested in improving the ways in which its collections are used to communicate ideas to the general public. The staff
wants to bring in a team of scholars, museum curators and educators to help
develop workable humanities themes and strategies for interpreting those
themes for visitors.
