New Guidelines and Application Instructions for
Preservation and Access Projects: National Endowment for the Humanities

The National Endowment for the Humanities,
Division of Preservation and Access, will be
accepting applications this summer for Humanities
Collections and Resources grants.

This grant program combines support for
activities that were funded previously through
two separate categories -- Preserving and Creating
Access to Humanities Collections and Reference
Materials. Digital technology now makes possible
unified access to geographically dispersed
collections and the integration of reference
materials with related sources and tools. The
possibilities presented by advances in technology
require a new grant category that encompasses the
range of activities funded through the previous
programs and encourages digital projects that
codify, unite, integrate, or aggregate humanities collections and resources.

The new guidelines (which include sample proposal
narratives) can be found at
Application receipt deadline is July 17, 2007 for
projects beginning May 2008. All applications to
NEH must be submitted electronically through
Grants.gov; see guidelines for details.

Prospective applicants seeking further
information are encouraged to contact the
Division at 202-606-8570 or
Program staff will read draft proposals submitted
six weeks before the deadline. A list of the 2006
awards is available at


The National Endowment for the Humanities is a
grant-making agency of the United States (U.S.)
federal government that supports projects in the

of material culture held by libraries, archives, museums, historical
