National Endowment for the Humanities Scholars



Created in 1965, the National Endowment for the Humanities has been a supporter of National History Day from the very beginning. The NEH supports education in the humanities through grants to educational and cultural institutions, museums, and individual scholars. The NEH’s mission is to create lifelong learners, support independent scholarship, and further education in the humanities. Because National History Day students embody the core values held by the NEH, the endowment generously sponsors the first place winners in the following categories:

Junior and Senior Individual Exhibit
Junior and Senior Group Exhibit
Junior Individual Documentary

Junior and Senior Individual Performance

Junior and Senior Individual Web Site
