NEH Announces Winners of $36.6 Million in Grants

Yesterday, the National Endowment for the Humanities announced the 212 humanities projects receiving a total of $36.6 million in its latest round of grants.

Grantees include the Philadelphia Museum of Art, which will receive $400,000 to stage an exhibition on Mexican modern art from 1910–50, and the Portland Museum of Art in Maine, which is getting the same amount to reinstall the museum’s collections.

The announcements also marked the inaugural round of grants being given under the new NEH Public Scholar Program, which supports “nonfiction books that apply serious humanities scholarship to subjects of general interest and appeal.” The complete winners of this grant cycle can be found here.
