Initiative Fund for Public Programming
The NEH Humanities Initiative Fund for Public Programs was established to promote humanities programming to the general public. Members of CHIIRS seminars are eligible to apply to this Fund to initiate programs, such as lectures, workshops, mini-conferences, performances, and other activities, which would be open to members of both Emory and the local community. For example, a reading by a local novelist arranged by the CHIIRS on Women Writers could be opened to community members. Applications to this Fund should outline the specific methods that organizers plan to use to publicize the event to the community and detail how they would involve non-academic participants.
