"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 year? Do you need funds to carry out a plan you’ve already developed? Our next application round for Humanities for All Quick Grants opens on May 15, 2023. Start the process by reviewing the Quick Grants homepage with an eye to the Guidelines and FAQs to learn more. Applications are due June 15, 2023.
Quick Grants (between $1,000 and $5,000) are awarded three times a year to small-scale public humanities programs and projects which take place within one year from the award date. Appropriate formats include but are not limited to community dialogues, reading (or film) and discussion groups, oral history or nonfiction writing or story-sharing workshops, and other types of activities. Any California-based nonprofit organization or non-federal public agency is eligible to apply. Note: A cash or in-kind match of the award is NOT required.
On May 11, 2023 at 11am PT, California Humanities will host a free informational webinar on how to develop your application. Please register here in advance.
