The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) announced $36.6 million in grants for 212 humanities projects on July 28, 2015.  This funding will support a wide variety of projects including traveling exhibitions, the creation of new digital research tools, the preparation and publication of scholarly editions, professional development opportunities for teachers and college faculty, the preservation of cultural collections, collaborative humanities research, and the production and development of films, television, and radio programs.
