A new focus area has been designated for Humanities for All grant applications, starting with the summer 2019 round of Humanities for All Project Grants. With Second Responders: The Humanities in the Aftermath of Natural Disasters, California Humanities wants to assist California communities in recovering and healing from natural disasters (such as wildfires, floods, and mudslides) and to raise awareness on the part of all Californians about the challenges affected individuals and communities face through public humanities programming. If your project will focus around the collection, sharing, and discussion of stories and experiences of community members affected by recent natural disasters (within the 2014-2019 period), you may apply for special consideration under this designation.
NEW Deadline: Monday, August 5, 2019, 5 pm
Interested in a Humanities for All Project Grant? Our next application round will be opening on July 1, 2019. Get started soon with the Guidelines—now available online. Register below for the upcoming webinar on June 12, 2019 to learn more.
Project Grants (between $10,000 to $20,000) are awarded twice a year for larger 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. 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.
