DEADLINE—Attention public humanities programmers! Do you have an idea for a public-facing humanities project you would like to implement within the next 30 months? Do you want to expand your existing programming into the digital realm? Do you need funds to carry out a plan you’ve already developed? Our next application round for Humanities for All Project Grants opens on Monday, June 1, 2020. Start the process by reviewing the updated Guidelines and FAQs to learn more. Register below for the upcoming webinar on Thursday, June 11, 2020. Applications are due August 3, 2020.

Project Grants (between $10,000 to $20,000) are awarded twice a year for public humanities projects of up to two-years duration from the award date. 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. Virtual as well as face-to-face programming is encouraged. Eligibility is limited to California-based nonprofit organizations and non-federal public agencies. Note: Awards must be matched with an equivalent amount of cash or in-kind resources over the life of the project. For grant guidelines, instructions, or to start a new application, please visit the Project Grant section of the Humanities for All Funding Opportunities webpage. California Humanities will host a free informational webinar on how to develop your application on  Thursday, June 11, 2020 at 11 am PST. Please register here in advance.
