NEH for All

An initiative of the National Humanities Alliance Foundation, NEH for All is a focused examination of National Endowment for the Humanities grantees across the nation. Rather than broadly survey every grant issued by the agency—of which there are thousands—this project explores the effect of NEH grants over time and across nine impact areas:

  • preserving cultural heritage
  • ensuring rural access to high quality programming
  • enriching K-12 education
  • providing lifelong learning opportunities for diverse audiences
  • facilitating community dialogue
  • supporting cutting-edge research
  • fostering local tourism
  • supporting veterans
  • promoting civic education
  • and collecting and curating local histories

Through partnerships with established organizations, the Endowment supports programs that have a national reach, making American heritage and the best humanities work publicly accessible to people across the nation.

NEH for All is an initiative of the National Humanities Alliance Foundation and is supported by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

About the NEH

The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) was established in 1965 in recognition of the unique role the humanities play in fostering the wisdom, vision, and knowledge required to participate in a thriving democracy. To this day, the NEH supports excellence in humanities research, teaching, and lifelong learning opportunities that provide millions of Americans the knowledge of our history and culture essential for engaged citizenship.
