These grants support interpretive museum exhibitions (both long-term and traveling) and the interpretation of historic sites, and include support for accompanying publications, websites, and public humanities programming. Public humanities programs support lifelong learning in history, literature, comparative religion, philosophy, and other fields of the humanities for broad public audiences.
Applicants for implementation grants should have already done most of the planning for their projects, including the identification of the key humanities themes, relevant scholarship, and program formats. Projects with interdisciplinary perspectives are eligible for implementation grants. Also eligible are projects that use innovative formats and non-traditional ways of engaging audiences, either as part of the installation itself, or through ancillary activities such as museum theater, intergenerational programs, or multimedia components.
