NEH Next Generation Grants Announced

We learned yesterday that the National Endowment for the Humanities has just announced its annual grants, including those from a new Next Generation program that seeks to encourage reconfiguration of graduate education to better prepare doctoral students for non-academic as well as academic careers.  University of Chicago, University of Delaware, and Duke University received implementation grants of up to $350,000; twenty-five institutions received planning grants of up to $25,000.  Duke’s press release is here; a (gated) story in the Chronicle of Higher Education is here.
