Reminder! Applications for the second round of our new grants program, Humanities for All Project Grants, will be accepted through August 16. Guidelines, application instructions, FAQs, and a link to the recorded informational webinar are all available at the program webpage.
Awards range between $10,000 and $20,000 for public humanities projects of up to two years duration sponsored by California-based nonprofit organizations and public agencies. Projects should demonstrate responsiveness and relevance, encourage greater public participation in humanities programming, particularly by new and/or underserved audiences, and show potential to promote understanding and empathy among Californians. Appropriate programming formats include but are not limited to interpretive exhibits, community dialogue and discussion series, workshops and participatory activities, presentations and lectures, conversations and forums, and interactive and experiential activities. All awards must be matched with an equivalent amount of cash or in-kind resources over the life of the project.

Humanities for All Quick Grants (between $1,000 and $5,000) support smaller-scale public humanities activities and projects that will take place within a one-year period. Visit the program webpage for more information. The next deadline will be October 15.
