Bridging Cultures at Community Colleges

Bridging Cultures at Community Colleges – NEH Bridging Cultures at Community Colleges grants are intended to strengthen and enrich humanities education and scholarship at community colleges or community college systems. These projects must be planned and implemented in collaboration with another institution with appropriate resources, such as a college or university, museum, research library, or professional association. Grants may be used to enhance the humanities content of existing programs, develop new programs, or lay the foundation for more extensive endeavors in the future. NEH Bridging Cultures at Community Colleges grants • create opportunities for community college faculty members to study together while improving their capacity to teach the humanities; • enhance or develop areas of need in an institution’s humanities programs; and • give community college faculty access to humanities resources through partnerships with other institutions with appropriate resources. Projects must focus on the theme of Bridging Cultures. This agency-wide initiative encourages exploration of the ways in which cultures from around the globe, as well as the myriad subcultures within America’s borders, have influenced American society.
