Department of Interior FY12 Appropriations Letter
The AAU FY12 budget request for the National Endowment for the Humanities.
We are writing to urge the Subcommittee to provide funding for the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) at the fiscal year (FY) 2010 enacted level of $167.5 million for FY 2012. As you know, NEH is the primary source of federal support for humanities research and related activities in the U.S. The Endowment provides competitive grant funding for research and scholarship in history, literature, foreign languages, and other fields that provide individuals with critical ethical, cultural, and historical perspective..
On behalf of the Association of American Universities (AAU), an organization of 61 leading U.S. public and private research universities, I appreciate the opportunity to express strong support for the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH). AAU urges Congress to continue funding the NEH at the FY10 final funding level of $167.5 million. In particular, we remain committed to maintaining existing funding levels for the core competitive programs within the endowment..
