The AIA and APA Joint Annual Meeting is excited to offer a special opportunity to attendees to meet with a senior programs officer at NEH to discuss your funding needs.

You’ve got a great project—now all you need is the money to support it. Where do you get it? Why do certain projects get funded and others don’t? What should the key elements of your application be?

Find the answers to these questions and more by making an appointment to meet with a representative from  the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH).  Maneuvering through the grant process can be challenging, but by understanding what the funder is looking for, you can help take some of the guess work out of the process and increase your chances for success. Mary Downs, a Senior Programs Officer from NEH will be onsite and is excited speak with attendees about funding opportunities across all NEH  offices and divisions -- including Public Programs, Research, Education, Digital Humanities, as well as her own Division of Preservation and Access funding programs.

How to make an appointment to discuss your grant application:

Appointment availability: Friday, 10:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m.; Saturday, 10:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m.

There are eight appointment times available as each appointment is a half an hour in length.  AM attendees should email Ms. Downs directly at mdowns@neh.gov you may also stop by the AIA kiosk for additional information. (Appointments are limited and will be available on a first come, first served basis).
