Government Funding Deadlines May 1st

It is a little-known fact that the National Endowment for the Humanities offers research grants to independent scholars. Affiliation with a university or think-tank is not a requirement for receiving government funding for a worthy project.

While endorsements of a particular religion using government funds is prohibited, many humanistic topics that are faith-related could be researched, provided they are tied to the greater goals of the NEH guidelines. The current NEH head, Dana Gioia, is an accomplished writer with a sound mind.

Several deadlines are coming up on May 1st. Whether or not you intend to apply this year, bookmark this page:

Who knows, maybe this year's winning research project could be the "Collected Works of St. Katherine Drexel"?
