Implementation Grants for Special Projects: Special Project grants support a variety of public humanities program formats, including public discussion forums, hands-on learning experiences, discussion series based on reading or film-viewing, multi-faceted conferences, or symposia. Small exhibitions or interpretive publications might serve as common texts for such programs. Living history or historical impersonations might also be appropriate if they are deeply grounded in scholarship. Applicants for an implementation grant should have already identified their project's key humanities themes, relevant scholarship, and program formats. Most of the planning and consultation with scholars and programming advisors should already have taken place. Special Projects may take place at diverse venues, including community centers, places of worship, 4-H clubs, neighborhoods, parks, visitor centers, workplaces, state fairs, or in fields under tents. Development of a content-rich website might also be a Special Project. The audiences might be the general public or non-academic groups, such as senior citizens, youth, members of civic organizations, members of a profession (i.e. journalism or medicine), history and heritage tourists, hobbyists, or local citizens. NEH strongly encourages Special Projects that take place at multiple venues regionally or nationally. Organizations or associations with regional or national distribution mechanisms are often best equipped to do this. Single-site projects are rarely competitive unless they are of exceptional scope and quality, hold unusual promise as models, or are conceived as pilots for larger-scale projects. Public humanities programs support lifelong learning in history, literature, comparative religion, philosophy, and other fields of the humanities for broad public audiences. They go beyond the presentation of factual information and encourage thought and conversation about humanities ideas and questions. Applications for projects with interdisciplinary perspectives are welcome, as are applications for projects that offer new insights into familiar subjects and use innovative formats and non-traditional ways of engaging audiences.
