Civics + Humanities Middle Grades Grants is a new pilot program that aims to support civics and humanities education for California’s middle grades-aged youth (grades 6-8 or ages 10-14) in school and out-of-school settings. We hope these grants will empower a pipeline of California students to access humanities-rich education throughout their school career and into their adult lives as citizens in a civil society. Programs may take place in classrooms, after school, or further afield in libraries, summer camps, and more.

Implementation Grants ($15,000) are awarded to middle grades education projects in the programming phase. This grant is suited for applicants who are poised to launch a pilot project—or further develop a program— with emphasis on civics and humanities themes, over the course of eighteen months. Applications are accepted from California-based nonprofit organizations, schools, libraries, and public agencies.
Note: Implementation Grants must be matched with an equivalent amount of cash or in-kind resources over the life of the project.
Planning Grants ($5,000) are awarded to projects in the research and design phase. This grant is suited for applicants planning projects in the fields of middle grades education (ages 10-14, grades 6-8), with emphasis on civics and humanities themes. Applications are accepted from California-based nonprofit organizations, schools, libraries, and public agencies.
