NEH: Media Projects: Production Grants CFDA 45.164 - Promotion of the Humanities_Public Programs

Media Projects grants support the following formats:
- film and television projects; and
- radio projects.

Film and television projects may be single programs or a series addressing significant figures, events, or ideas. Programs must be intended for national distribution. The Division of Public Programs welcomes projects ranging in length from short-form to broadcast-length video.

Radio projects may involve single programs, limited series, or segments within an ongoing program. They may also develop new humanities content to augment existing radio programming or add greater historical background or humanities analysis to the subjects of existing programs. They may be intended for regional or national distribution.

NEH encourages projects that engage public audiences through multiple formats in the exploration of humanities ideas. Proposed projects might include complementary components to a film, television, or radio project. These components should deepen the audience's understanding of the subject: for example, websites, mobile applications, museum exhibitions, book/film discussion programs, or podcasts.

USC may only submit one application in response to this program announcement. (If an application for a project is already under review, another application for the same project cannot be accepted by this or any other NEH grant opportunity.) Your application submission MUST be coordinated with the Office of the Vice President for Research. Please send a two page abstract via email to Richard White ( by July 10, 2017. In addition to the 2-page abstract, you should also submit a biosketch for the PI.

NEH indicates that a Letter of Intent is NOT REQUIRED and an application is due by August 9, 2017. For more information:
