The National Humanities Center, located in the Research Triangle Park of North Carolina, is a privately incorporated independent institute for advanced study in the humanities. Since 1978 the Center has awarded fellowships to more than 1,300 scholars in the humanities, whose work at the Center has resulted in the publication of more than 1,500 books in all fields of humanistic study. The Center also sponsors programs to strengthen the teaching of the humanities in secondary and higher education. During the academic year, fellows and invited visitors are featured in monthly lectures attended by local scholars, students, and the general public. The Center also organizes conferences on topics of broad intellectual and public interest. Friends of the Center are welcomed at concerts, exhibitions, and other cultural events.
