Grant to a USA nonprofit or IHE to host two national conferences to explore the current state of civics, government, and American history education in K-12 schools. Required registrations may take several weeks to complete. The successful applicant will publish and disseminate the findings and best practices to the general public and the education community.
The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH)’s Division of Education Programs is accepting applications for a fifteen-month cooperative agreement of up to $650,000 to plan, develop, and implement a series of two national convenings that will focus on an assessment of the state of civics education and knowledge of American history and government in K-12 education and publish a report on the findings for voluntary use by the education community. Following publication of the report, the cooperator will organize a national forum in Washington, D.C. to disseminate the reports’ findings, which will serve as the launch event of a robust national dissemination strategy, including both traditional and digital media, to the education community and general public.
The goal of the project will be to highlight innovative evidence-based approaches, learning strategies, and professional development, with an emphasis on activities and programs that benefit low-income and underserved populations.
The convenings will bring together roughly 20-30 non-federal national leaders, researchers, and practitioners from educational institutions, and non-profit and for-profit organizations, and should serve as a forum to share ideas and solutions. They will also offer opportunities to analyze gaps in the field expressed by practitioners, experts, and scholars, and to facilitate a national conversation about literacy in American history and civics. Approximately 50 federal staff members will also attend the convenings. The national forum will include up to 300 attendees, including the national convening participants.
