Guidelines for the next round of Humanities for All Quick Grants ($1,000 to $5,000) are now available on our Humanities for All grants page. These grants support locally-initiated small-scale public humanities projects taking place within one year from the award date. The deadline for applications is October 15, 2019.
Projects should be grounded in the humanities, show potential to provide high quality humanities learning experiences for participants and audiences, and demonstrate capacity for successful implementation. Projects should also relate to the histories, experiences, and topics of concern to the people of California.
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.
For guidelines, application instructions, and a list of previously awarded funded projects please visit the Humanities for All grants page.
This round will be the first Humanities for All Quick Grant round to include the Second Responders: The Humanities in the Aftermath of Natural Disasters special designation, for projects focusing around the collection, sharing, and discussion of stories and experiences of community members affected by recent natural disasters (within the 2014-2019 period).
Good luck and we look forward to seeing your applications!
