An eligible institution may submit only one application.

The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH)’s Division of Education Programs is accepting applications for a fifteen-month cooperative agreement of up to $650,000 to plan, develop, and implement a series of two national convenings that will focus on an assessment of the state of civics education and knowledge of American history and government in K-12 education and publish a report on the findings for voluntary use by the education community. Following publication of the report, the cooperator will organize a national forum in Washington, D.C. to disseminate the reports’ findings, which will serve as the launch event of a robust national dissemination strategy, including both traditional and digital media, to the education community and general public.

The goal of the project will be to highlight innovative evidence-based approaches, learning strategies, and professional development, with an emphasis on activities and programs that benefit low-income and underserved populations
