Apply Now: Proposals for National Convenings on the State of American History and Civics Education
The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) is partnering with the U.S. Department of Education (ED) to offer a special funding opportunity to bring together educators, national leaders, researchers, and other practitioners to assess how American history, civics, and government are taught in K-12 education.
The NEH is offering a fifteen-month cooperative agreement to a qualified organization to:
- host two national convenings with the goal of assessing the state of, and best practices in, the teaching of American history, civics, and government in K-12 education;
- publish a report to disseminate the convenings’ findings, including a national forum in Washington D.C. to launch the report and
- implement a robust national publicity strategy to the education community and general public.
This call for proposals is open to higher education institutions and nonprofit organizations with expertise in the holding of such convenings and the development of evidence-based approaches with the potential to improve the quality of American history, civics, and government teaching and learning.
Cooperative agreement proposals must be received by August 12, 2019. Questions about the program should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
