Bridging Cultures at Community Colleges

 

NEH Bridging Cultures at Community Colleges grants are intended to strengthen and enrich humanities education and scholarship at community colleges or community college systems. Grants are used to enhance the humanities content of existing programs, develop new programs, or lay the foundation for more extensive endeavors in the future. NEH Bridging Cultures at Community Colleges grants Âż create opportunities for community college faculty members to study together while improving their capacity to teach the humanities; Âż enhance or develop areas of need in an institutionÂżs humanities programs; and Âż give community college faculty access to humanities resources through partnerships with other institutions with appropriate resources. Projects must focus on the theme of Bridging Cultures. This agency-wide initiative encourages exploration of the ways in which cultures from around the globe, as well as the myriad subcultures within AmericaÂżs borders, have influenced American society. With the aim of revitalizing intellectual and civic life through the humanities, NEH welcomes proposals that enhance understanding of diverse countries, peoples, and cultural and intellectual traditions worldwide. Applications might also investigate how Americans have approached and attempted to surmount seemingly unbridgeable cultural divides, or examine the ideals of civility and civic discourse that have informed this quest. In connection with a focus on civic discourse, projects might explore the role of women in AmericaÂżs civic life as well as the civic role of women in other cultures and regions of the world. Projects must draw on sound humanities scholarship related to the theme of Bridging Cultures, engage participating faculty in shared readings of important humanities texts, involve humanities scholars with appropriate expertise, improve the quality of humanities course offerings at a community college or community college system, and create opportunities to disseminate their results. The application must reflect a collaborative relationship between a community college or community college system and another institution with appropriate resources (such as a college or university, museum, research library, or professional association) in the planning and implementation of the project. The applicant of record may be a community college, community college system, or another institution with appropriate resources.
