"The understanding of a culture comes from hearing the language, tasting the food, seeing personal interactions, experiencing the traditions, and so much more when it is in context."
— Elizabeth Laval & Candice Pendergrass, Sikh Youth Public History Project

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 Thursday, June 1, 2023. Start the process by reviewing the Project Grants homepage with an eye to the updated Guidelines and FAQs to learn more. Applications are due July 17, 2023.
Project Grants (between $10,000 to $25,000) 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.
On June 8, 2023 at 11am PT, California Humanities will host a free informational webinar on how to develop your application. Please register here in advance.
