Michael Meyer named NEH Public Scholar

A big, big up to Professor Michael Meyer. He's been offered a 2016-2017 National Endowment for the Humanities Public Scholar award to undertake the project, “Benjamin Franklin's Last Bet: How a Founding Father's Daring Philanthropy Reshaped the American Will." According to the NEH: "The Public Scholar Program supports well-researched books in the humanities intended to reach a broad readership. Books supported by this program must be grounded in humanities research and scholarship. They must address significant humanities themes likely to be of broad interest and must be written in a readily accessible style. Making use of primary and/or secondary sources, they should open up important and appealing subjects for a wide audience. The challenge is to make sense of a significant topic in a way that will appeal to general readers."
