Bridging Cultures at Community Colleges

Posted by National Endowment for the Humanities on July 21, 2014

The National Endowment for the Humanities is accepting applications for a program designed to strengthen and enrich humanities education and scholarship at community colleges.

Through the Bridging Cultures at Community Colleges program, grants of up to $120,000 will be awarded for projects that enhance the humanities content of existing programs, develop new programs, or lay the foundation for more extensive endeavors in the future. Projects must draw on sound humanities scholarship related to the theme of Bridging Cultures, engage participating faculty in shared readings of important humanities texts, involve humanities scholars with appropriate expertise, improve the quality of humanities course offerings at a community college or community college system, and create opportunities to disseminate their results.

Any U.S. nonprofit organization with tax-exempt status is eligible, as are state and local governmental agencies and federally recognized Indian tribal governments. The planning and implementation of a project must involve a partnership between a community college or community college system and another institution with appropriate resources, such as a college or university, museum, research library, or professional association.
