Look both ways before crossing! Get undergrads involved in the Humanities! And, save the Large-flowered Fiddleneck!
What on earth do these three random things have in common? They're the pick of the litter in this week's Grant Round Up. DOT has funding for safe rail crossing education. For communities like ours where railways cross many roadways, this is a great opportunity for up to a million dollars for safety education. NEH is seeking to expand the role of the humanities in undergraduate education at two- and four-year institutions with awards up to $100,000. And, if like us you have no idea what a Large-flowered Fiddleneck is, be sure to check out the latest opportunity from the Bureau of Reclamation to satisfy your curiosity.
