Grant funding from the federal government seems like a giant alphabet soup, with National Science Foundation (NSF), National Institutes of Health (NIH), National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), Department of Energy (DOE), and Department of Defense (DOD) all being important players. While there are many similarities in procedure and practice from one federal agency to another, there are also many differences, and a person seeking funds cannot assume that NEH and NSF will operate in the same way.
This workshop compares and contrasts funding programs at six important federal agencies: the Departments of Energy, the Department of Defense, the National Endowments for the Arts and Humanities, the National Institutes of Health and the National Science Foundation. It looks at the mission statements and strategic planning goals of each agency, explores their structures and funding mechanisms, identifies unique attributes of their various funding programs, examines sample solicitations, and discusses their methods of merit review.
