The Washington Papers Receives $320,000 Grant from the NEH

On August 2, 2017, The Washington Papers received a $320,000 grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) and a federal matching grant for another $100,000.

Funding will maintain work already underway on The Papers of George Washington. The grant specifically supports preparation for volumes 26-32 of the Revolutionary War Series and publication of volumes 20-21 of the Presidential Series. These nine volumes will complete the print collection of The Papers of George Washington, a documentary edition that began in the late 1960s, with support from NEH, among other charitable institutions.

This year, The Washington Papers was one of 15 projects in Virginia that was awarded funding from NEH, which announced $39.3 million in grant offers for 245 humanities projects across the United States.

“NEH grants ensure that Americans around the country have the opportunity to engage with our shared cultural heritage,” said NEH acting chairman Jon Parrish Peede in last week’s grant awards announcement.

As The Washington Papers move towards concluding The Papers of George Washington (as well as engaging in new ventures such as the Martha Washington Papers project), we are proud to be one of the many projects contributing to that mission.

The Washington Papers remains grateful for the funding it continues to receive from NEH, as well as from the federal matching program and private donors. For a full list of our current and past donors, click here.
