  • New NEH Grant Program on Enduring Questions: Pilot Course Grants... The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) has just announced a new program titled "Enduring Questions: Pilot Course Grants." Its purpose is to encourage faculty and students at the undergraduate level to grapple with the most fundamental concerns of the humanities, and to join together in deep, sustained programs of reading in order to encounter influential thinkers over the centuries and into the present day. With grants of up to $25,000, the program will support new humanities courses at the undergraduate level including their design and preparation, teaching, and assessment, as well as ancillary activities that enhance faculty-student intellectual community. Courses may be taught by faculty from any department or discipline in the humanities or by faculty outside the humanities (e.g., biology, economics, mathematics, psychology), provided humanities sources are central to the course. The grant period can be from 18 to 24 months and begins in July 2009. The deadline for online applications is November 13. Further information regarding the application process, examples of enduring questions, and purposes for which grant funds can be used are at http://www.neh.gov/grants/guidelines/EnduringQuestions.html.
