Public Scholar Program

The Public Scholar Program supports well-researched books in the humanities intended to reach a broad readership.

Some humanities scholarship is necessarily specialized, but the humanities can also engage broad audiences in exploring subjects of general interest.

Such scholarship might

present a narrative history, tell the stories of important individuals, analyze significant texts, provide a synthesis of ideas, revive interest in a neglected subject, or examine the latest thinking on a topic.

Books supported by this program must be grounded in humanities research and scholarship, making appropriate use of primary and/or secondary sources.

They must also be written in a readily accessible style, addressing significant humanities themes in a way that will appeal to a large audience of general readers.

Applications to write books directed primarily to scholars are not appropriate for this program.

By establishing the Public Scholar Program, NEH has entered a long-term commitment to encourage scholarship in the humanities for general audiences.

The program is open to both individuals affiliated with scholarly institutions and to independent scholars, researchers, and writers.

Projects may be at any stage of development.
