Grant Opportunity: National Endowment for the Humanities' (NEH) Archaeological and Ethnographic Field Research grant provides financial support for research that uses archaeological and/or ethnographic techniques to answer significant questions in the humanities. Projects should focus on domestic or international fieldwork in the humanities.
NEH is particularly interested in proposals in the following categories:
  • A More Perfect Union: Exploring America's Story and Commemorating its 250th Anniversary projects will address questions of racial justice, gender equality, or the evolution of the American landscape through the perspective of the humanities. Projects that strengthen Americans' knowledge of our principles of constitutional governance and democracy, as well as projects that address the experience of underrepresented groups, are strongly encouraged.
  • Standing Together projects will explore war and its aftermath, promote discussion and deepened understanding of the experiences of Americans involved in the armed forces, and support returning veterans and their families.
  • Protecting Our Cultural Heritage projects will study, document, or create digital representations of lost or imperiled cultural heritage materials.
Eligibility: U.S. 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organizations, nonprofit institutions of higher education, state and local governmental agencies, and federally recognized Native American tribal governments are eligible to apply.
Grant Amount and Grant Period: The maximum grant award amount is $150,000, and the grant period will range between four to 36 months starting on June 1st, 2022.
Deadline: September 29, 2021
