SCS is a member of the National Humanities Alliance (NHA), a national coalition dedicated to advancing humanities research, teaching, preservation, and public programs in the US. Late last week, the NHA issued the alert below regarding the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH).
The NEH currently funds the Society’s TLL Fellowship Program. Further, the NEH made a grant to the Society of $650,000 in challenge grant funding during the last Capital Campaign, and supports and has supported numerous individual research projects, digital humanities projects, digital resources, and public humanities initiatives in the field of classical studies.
See the NHA’s alert here:
News broke on Thursday that the incoming administration is considering the elimination of NEH, along with other cultural agencies.
While we are all concerned, it is important to remember that we have built considerable support in Congress over the past years and we can fight this proposal.
It is time to take action and make clear to the President-Elect and Members of Congress that you value federal funding for the humanities.
Click here to take action.
Together, we will communicate that public support for the humanities benefits students, teachers, and communities across the country.
Learn more about this blueprint and plans to stop it here.
Thank you for your support!
