WASHINGTON (AP) - The National Endowment for the Humanities is giving more than $36 million in grants for projects, including funds to help publish 36 nonfiction books to support popular scholarly writing.

The endowment announced its newest round of grants Tuesday. In total, the agency is awarding grants to 212 humanities projects.

The projects include an exhibition on Mexican modern art at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the excavation of the Plymouth Colony in Massachusetts and publication of the personal papers of Martin Luther King Jr.

The funding includes $1.7 million for the first grants in the endowment’s new Public Scholar program. This program seeks to make humanities scholarship relevant to contemporary life and a broader audience. The Public Scholar grants will fund writers in history, biography and other nonfiction subjects.
