Humanities Initiatives at Historically Black Colleges and Universities
Humanities Initiatives strengthen the teaching and study of the humanities at institutions of higher education by developing new or enhancing existing programs, resources (including those in digital format), or courses that explore, interpret, and preserve the diversity of human cultures, ideas, and practices, past and present.
Projects must address a core topic or set of themes drawn from humanities areas such as history, philosophy, religion, literature, or humanities-informed composition and writing skills.
U.S.-accredited public or 501(c)(3) private Historically Black Colleges and Universities, as defined by Executive Order 13532, are eligible. See the U.S. Department of Education’s accredited HBCU listing.
