SACRAMENTO—Are you looking for funding support for an upcoming public humanities event, library program, or media project? Do you have questions about writing the proposal, filling out the budget form, or submitting work samples? Or do you want to know more about humanities advisers and what role the humanities can play?
Join California Humanities staff for this informational session on funding for projects in the humanities. President and CEO Julie Fry, Senior Program Officer John Lightfoot, and Advocacy and Outreach Manager John Nguyen-Yap will be on-hand to answer your questions.
Current grant programs:
- Humanities for All provides grants for locally-initiated public humanities projects across the state.
- California Documentary Project supports films, podcasts, and digital media projects that seek to document California in all its complexity.
We will offer tips on preparing your proposal, discuss what makes an application competitive, share news, and leave plenty of time for your questions. Be sure to bring your questions with you. Attendees will have the opportunity to network with other attendees and ask questions of California Humanities staff.
