The National Endowment for the Humanities has a Public Programs division that supports a wide range of public humanities programs, especially for projects that make use of new and emerging technologies. These are excellent opportunities to collaborate with libraries, museums, and other cultural organizations. Funding opportunities include the America's Historical and Cultural Organizations grants, which offers both planning and implementation grants, for exhibitions at museums, libraries, historic sites and historical and cultural organizations. In addition, the NEH supports radio and television programs that explore significant events, figures, and developments in the humanities through the America's Media Makers grants. With the Bridging Cultures: Implementation Grants for Public Programs, the NEH welcomes proposals to implement a national or regional program for broad and diverse public audiences on changing humanities themes.
