McAllister & Quinn held a National Endowment for the Humanities Workshop in Washington, D.C., on March 17-18. This intensive two-day workshop focused on funding opportunities at the National Endowment for the Humanities. Clients had an opportunity for one-on-one consultations to refine grant concepts and heard from various workshop presenters about specific opportunities to support humanities programs. Specific opportunities that attendees explored included:
- Capacity-building grants intended to help institutions and organizations secure long-term improvements in and support for their humanities programs and resources;
- Grants that support faculty development programs in the humanities for school teachers and for college and university teachers;
- Preservation grants aimed at preserving or providing access to humanities collections;
- Programs that support historic sites to address central themes and issues in American history, government, literature, art, music, and other related subjects in the humanities; and
- Collaborative opportunities that support interpretive humanities research.
