Supported by the National Endowment for the Humanities’ Sustaining the Humanities through the American Rescue Plan (SHARP), the SSRC/NEH Sustaining Humanities Infrastructure Program (SHIP) aims to address the Covid-19 pandemic’s wide-ranging impact across the humanities sector—on staffing, programs, and project infrastructure that is crucial to maintaining the advancement of the humanities. 

The awards support colleges, universities, and nonprofit humanities research or educational organizations to restore, sustain, and recover from the pandemic, allowing organizations to bolster under-supported humanities programming with a focus on diversity, equity, and inclusion.
