Title: America's Media Makers (AMM): Development Grants (CFDA 45.164)

Deadline: 12/02/2013

Amount: $40,000-$75,000/6-12 mos.

Description: America’s Media Makers (AMM) grants support interactive digital media, film and television projects and radio projects. NEH encourages projects that feature multiple formats to engage the public in the exploration of humanities ideas. Proposed projects might include complementary components that expand or deepen the audience’s understanding of a subject: for example, museum exhibitions, book/film discussion programs, or other formats that engage audiences in new ways. Development grants enable media producers to collaborate with scholars to develop humanities content and to prepare programs for production. Grants should result in a script or a design document and should also yield a detailed plan for outreach and public engagement in collaboration with a partner organization or organizations.

How to Apply: Contact your departmental Grants and Contracts Specialist or Kathy Thatcher (thatcher@austin.utexas.edu) in the COLA Office of Research and return Proposal Review Form by December 2.
