Endowment for research, exhibit design, and programming for the Heinz History Center.

The Heinz History Center seeks a $1,000,000 challenge grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities. This grant will be matched with $4 million in non-federal funds as part of a larger endowment campaign to raise $12.4 million. Forty percent of the challenge grant funds will support scholarly research for future exhibition development. Exhibits and programming must meet the highest standards for interpretation. In order for this goal to be met, a significant investment must be made in identifying cutting-edge scholarship as well as creating and advancing new scholarship. The remaining sixty percent of challenge grant funding will be used to create visually exciting exhibits, creative programming and evaluation that will help gauge their impact. It is imperative to create humanities programming capable of engaging multi-ethnic and multi-generational audiences in ways that change people's lives.
