NEH Scholarly Editions

The National Endowment for the Humanities is pleased to announce its Scholarly Editions Grants which support the preparation of editions of pre-existing texts and documents that are currently inaccessible or available in inadequate editions. Projects must be undertaken by a team of at least one editor and one other staff member. Proposals for editions of foreign language materials in the original language are eligible for funding. This grant program does not support the preparation or publication of textbooks intended primarily for classroom use. The Endowment currently sponsors two agency-wide programs—We the People and Digital Humanities—and one special initiative, Rediscovering Afghanistan. We the People encourages applications that explore significant events and themes in our nation’s history and culture and that advance knowledge of the principles that define America. Digital Humanities
welcomes applications for humanities projects that use digital technology or study its impact. Rediscovering Afghanistan invites applications for projects that focus on Afghanistan’s history and culture. Awards are made for one to three years and normally range from $50,000 to $100,000 per year.
