We are thrilled to report that on March 10, the Association received a $30,000 grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities funded through the Division of Education Programs, continuing our recent run of great success in raising money for our programs and activities. Great thanks are owed to Immediate Past President Christopher Ricks for the indispensible role he played in presenting our case to the generous and hard-working program officers at the Endowment. We are very hopeful and optimistic that news of this award will help us in our continuing efforts to attract major support from other funding agencies and individuals. So please—spread the word!

What is the good life? What is friendship? What is good government? Is there a human nature, and, if so, what is it? What are the limits of science? Enduring questions such as these have long held interest to college students and allow for a special, intense dialogue across generations.
The National Endowment for the Humanities has recently launched “Enduring Questions: Pilot Course Grants.” This new grant program will support college faculty from any discipline with up to $25,000 to develop and to teach a new undergraduate humanities course that addresses questions like these.
The application deadline is November 13, 2008, and the sponsoring institution must agree to offer the course at least twice. For more information and instructions, please find the grant guidelines at: http://www.neh.gov/grants/guidelines/EnduringQuestions.html.
We encourage you to share information about this new funding opportunity with your members.
