About the Program

The Research and Development http://www.neh.gov/grants/preservation/research-and-development  grant program supports projects that address major challenges in preserving and providing access to humanities collections and resources.  Recognizing that singular projects such as a case study or basic research experiment can have far-reaching implications, while longer-term projects demand ongoing planning, this program for the first time will offer two tiers of funding.

Both funding tiers support the development of standards, practices, methodologies, and workflows dedicated to the stewardship of humanities collections.  Tier I, which is for projects up to $75,000, supports planning, basic research, and iterative tool development.  Tier II, which is for projects up to $350,000, supports advanced implementation and applied research.

The application deadline for Research and Development is June 25, 2015.  For complete information on how to apply, visit our information page: http://www.neh.gov/grants/preservation/research-and-development.
