01/31/12 National Endowment for the Humanities: Media Makers Grants for America’s Media Makers support projects in a range of formats, including interactive digital media and radio and television programs that engage the public in the humanities and explore stories, ideas, and beliefs in order to deepen our understanding of our lives and our world. Projects should encourage dialogue, discussion, and civic engagement, and they should foster learning among people of all ages. To that end, the Division of Public Programs urges applicants to consider more than one format for presenting humanities ideas to the public. NEH offers two categories of grants for media projects: development grants and production grants. Development grants enable media producers to collaborate with scholars to develop humanities content and format and to prepare programs for production. Production grants support the production and distribution of digital media projects, radio and television programs, and related programs that promise to engage the public. http://www.neh.gov/grants/guidelines/AmMediaMakers_development.html
