The session will give attendees the opportunity to learn from NEH senior program officer, Jennifer Serventi, about the many funding opportunities offered by the Endowment. She will cover the programs offered by the Divisions of Research Programs, Education Programs, Preservation and Access, Public Programs, and the Offices of Digital Humanities and Challenge Grants.
In her presentation, Serventi will address two related topics:
1) Opportunities that are available to faculty and staff, with a particular focus on support for digital projects; and
2) Strategies faculty can employ to take advantage of the opportunities.
Serventi also will discuss ways that faculty and staff can participate in NEH projects and special initiatives beyond applying for an award directly from NEH. Examples of these opportunities include serving as a peer review panelist, advising documentary films or podcasts, evaluating archival collections as an advisory board member, participating in educational seminars and institutes, conducting research with support of a fellowship from an independent research institution, or becoming involved in the work of your state humanities council.
