CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - The National Endowment for the Humanities has awarded grants totaling nearly $500,000 to projects in New Hampshire.

The largest award is a matching grant of $350,000 that will be used to redesign and relaunch a “Humanities to Go” speakers bureau program. Dartmouth College is getting nearly $75,000 to develop a tool that would allow researchers, students and educators to create and share annotations on the Internet, while a Dartmouth professor is getting $50,000 to write about the role of women in American democracy.

The other two grants are $6,000 each. One will go to the Portsmouth Athenaeum to conduct a fire safety study and to purchase temperature and humidity monitors. The Start Island Corporation will use its grant to preserve the collections of its Celia Thaxter Museum.
