Large Grants

**The Humanities Council is suspending the large-grant cycle that traditionally occurs in June 2014 as it re-imagines the grant-making process. 

For more information about large grants or for updates on the large grant process, contact Donovan McKnight at

In addition to large grants, the Council offers planning and minigrants, the Road Scholars speakers bureau; the Let’s Talk About It library discussion series; the traveling exhibition Museum on Main Street, in collaboration with the Smithsonian Institution and rural communities statewide; and Literature and Medicine: Humanities at the Heart of Health Care, a reading and discussion program for healthcare professionals.

The large grant requires the submission of a draft proposal. Grants provide funds for humanities projects of extended scope including, but not limited to, lecture/discussion series, performance/discussions, exhibit/discussions, and film/video productions. Media projects are limited to $5,000. Large grants must be postmarked no later than the deadline dates. Only large grant projects which begin at least four weeks from the date of funding will be considered.
