MLA Projects Cited in Article about New NEH Initiative

The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) has just launched Next Generation Humanities PhD Grants, a project that will support institutions in preparing students for careers outside the academy. Planning grants and implementation grants will enable institutions “to transform doctoral-level humanities preparation,” according to an article in Inside Higher Ed. MLA Executive Director Rosemary G. Feal noted that the NEH grants are “very much in concert” with the association’s efforts to reform doctoral education, which include the 2014 Report of the Task Force on Doctoral Study in Modern Language and Literature and the ongoing Connected Academics project, funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
