Nico Slate Receives NEH Fellowship

Professor Nico Slate received a pretigious National Endowment for the Humanities fellowship for his project on the role of the Highlander Folk School in Tennessee in training leaders of the civil rights movement.

The NEH announced $28.1 million in grants to support a total of 204 humanities projects, 29 of which will support advanced research and writing projects by humanities scholars.

“The range, diversity, and creativity of these new projects speak to the wealth of humanities ideas and deep engagement of humanities practitioners across our country,” said NEH Chair Shelly C. Lowe (Navajo). “From Tulsa, Oklahoma, to Hilo, Hawai‘i, NEH funding reaches thousands of towns and communities, supporting local organizations, fostering creative projects, and providing access to high-quality humanities for all Americans.”
