NATIONAL ENDOWMENT FOR THE HUMANITIES
Yvonne Boice’s love of the humanities and her incredible leadership skills have been recognized by the National Endowment for the Humanities. Boice has served for several years as a board member of the Trust of the NEH, and has been selected to chair the 50th Anniversary celebration of the institution.
“I want to underscore, how significant you have been to the National Trust — from Bruce Cole, Jim Leach to Bro Adams. Your financial support, and your offer to lead our efforts for the 50th Anniversary, are very significant and making an important difference,” stated Robert Perry, Chairman of the National Trust for the Humanities. “From the minute that I met you, you have been a leader of our Trust for the Humanities and an inspiration for other members.”
The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) is an independent federal agency created in 1965. It is one of the largest funders of humanities programs in the United States.
Because democracy demands wisdom, NEH serves and strengthens our republic by promoting excellence in the humanities and conveying the lessons of history to all Americans. The Endowment accomplishes this mission by awarding grants for top-rated proposals examined by panels of independent, external reviewers.
NEH grants typically go to cultural institutions, such as museums, archives, libraries, colleges, universities, public television, and radio stations, and to individual scholars.
