The National Endowment for the Humanities is an independent, grantmaking 
agency established by Congress in 1965 to support research, education, 
preservation, and public programs in the humanities.
According to the agency's authorizing legislation, the term 
``humanities'' includes, but is not limited to, the study of the 
following: language, both modern and classical; linguistics; literature; 
history; jurisprudence; philosophy; archeology; comparative religion; 
ethics; the history, criticism, and theory of the arts; and those 
aspects of the social sciences that employ historical or philosophical 
    The Endowment makes grants to individuals, groups, or institutions--
schools, colleges, universities, museums, public television stations, 
libraries, public agencies, and nonprofit private groups to increase 
understanding and appreciation of the humanities.

Challenge Grants   Nonprofit institutions interested in developing new 
sources of long-term support for educational, scholarly, preservation, 
and public programs in the humanities may be assisted in these efforts 
by a challenge grant.
