Endowment for the position of Associate Director of Public Programming and for scholars and academic consultants who contribute to humanities programming and publications.

Asia Society and Museum requests a $500,000 challenge grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities to support the launch of the next phase of its integrated humanities programming initiative. When fully matched, the $2 million endowment will generate an annual income of $100,000 exclusively for humanities programs. These funds will be applied annually to helping the Asia Society fulfill its humanities programming objectives: 1) the engagement of scholars and academic consultants to: a) contribute to publications, deliver contextualizing and explanatory lectures in subjects such as history, art history, philosophy, and society, and shape the humanities focus of Asia Society programs ($20,000); b) create and develop catalogues, audio guides, brochures, and wall text accompanying exhibitions ($25,000); 2) The funding of the base salary of one humanities programming staff professional ($55,000).
