Large Grants

**Currently the Council is only accepting large grant proposals related to the Standing Together project. You can learn more about our first cycle's funded Standing Together grant projects here.

Standing Together projects can receive up to $5,000 in Humanities Council funds. If you are interested in applying for our fall Standing Together grant cycle please download the application and instructions.

In addition to large grants, the Council offers planning and grassroots grants, 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. To learn more about the North Carolina Humanities Council, and to bring a humanities program to your community, explore www.nchumanities.org.

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.
