Funding Opportunity: Media Projects-Production Grants (NEH)

Deadline for Applications: July 19, 2017

Title: Media Projects: Production Grants
Sponsor: National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH)
Amount: $100,000-$650,000/1-3 yrs.

Description: Media Projects: Production Grants support film, television, and radio projects for general audiences that encourage active engagement with humanities ideas in creative and appealing ways. All projects must be grounded in humanities scholarship in disciplines such as history, art history, film studies, literature, drama, religious studies, philosophy, or anthropology. Projects must also demonstrate an approach that is thoughtful, balanced, and analytical (rather than celebratory). The approach to the subject matter must go beyond the mere presentation of factual information to explore its larger significance and stimulate critical thinking. NEH is a national funding agency, so the projects we support must demonstrate the potential to attract a broad general audience. Production grants support the production and distribution of films, television programs, and radio programs that promise to engage a broad public audience.

How to Apply (UT): Contact your departmental Grants and Contracts Specialist or Vanessa Lopez ( in Liberal Arts Grants Services and return the Proposal Review Form by July 19.
