NEH Awards and More: Strategies for Becoming Involved in NEH-Funded Projects
Monday, November 16, 2020 from 4:00pm - 5:30pm
|Registration||Register to attend|
Jennifer Serventi, senior program officer at the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) talks about the many funding opportunities offered by the endowment. She'll cover the programs offered by the Divisions of Research Programs, Education Programs, Preservation and Access, Public Programs, and the Offices of Digital Humanities and Challenge Grants. She'll address two related questions: 1) What opportunities are available to faculty and staff, with a particular focus on support for digital projects? and, 2) What kinds of strategies can they employ to take advantage of them?
She'll also discuss ways that faculty and staff can participate in NEH projects and special initiatives beyond applying for an award directly from NEH. Examples of these opportunities include serving as a peer review panelist, advising documentary films, evaluating archival collections as an advisory board member, participating in educational seminars and institutes, conducting research with support of a fellowship from an independent research institution, or becoming involved in the work of state humanities councils.
