Grants to USA colleges and universities to enhance undergraduate programs through creative curricular development and implementation. Applicants are advised that registrations may take up to a month to complete. The purpose of this program is to expand the role of the humanities in undergraduate education at two- and four-year institutions. Awards support innovative curricular approaches that foster productive partnerships among humanities faculty and their counterparts in the social and natural sciences and in pre-service or professional programs (such as business, engineering, health sciences, law, computer science, and other technology-driven fields), in order to encourage and develop new integrative learning opportunities for students.

    The Humanities Connections program includes two categories: Planning and Implementation.

    Planning Grants may be used to:

    • Establish and convene a team to develop overall project goals and outcomes
    • Engage outside experts for consultation on curriculum design or experiential learning opportunities (such as individual or collaborative undergraduate research projects, or a structured experience with community-based, project-based, or site-based learning)
    • Invest in seminars for faculty and administrators on substantive issues related to the success of the project
    • Organize focus or discussion groups around issues central to project rationale
    • Draw up potential new courses, instructional models, and pedagogies for development
    • Work with institutional leadership to outline long-range planning and sustainability

    Implementation awards may be used to:

    • Convene a core faculty team and develop working groups on issues central to project rationale
    • Engage outside experts on issues pertinent to project content, design, and sustainability
    • Develop, implement, assess, and refine curriculum (such as new courses, modules, and pathways) and instructional models for effective pedagogy
    • Develop and implement pilot projects and activities for student experiential learning (such as individual or collaborative undergraduate research projects, or a structured experience with community-based, project-based, or site-based learning)
    • Create and implement outreach strategies to attract students to new educational opportunities
    • Conduct mid- and long-range feasibility studies
