WASHINGTON (December 2, 2013) – The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) announced today $14.6 million in grants for 202 humanities projects, including the development of a documentary on Gertrude Bell, the English woman who played a decisive role in the history of Iraq and the modern Middle East.
“The National Endowment for the Humanities is proud to fund the nation’s finest humanities projects,” said NEH Deputy Chairman Carole Watson.
This funding will support a wide variety of projects, including research fellowships and awards for faculty, traveling exhibitions, the preservation of humanities collections at smaller institutions, and training programs to prepare libraries, museums, and archives to preserve and enhance access to their collections. Grants will also support humanities initiatives at historically black colleges, Hispanic-serving institutions, and tribal colleges and universities, and help institutions improve and secure long-term support for their humanities programs and resources.
