Schwartz Prize Winners


The 36th Annual Schwartz Prize

We are thrilled to announce that the judges awarded two Schwartz Prizes this year. The first to Mississippi Humanities Council for their "Racial Equity Grant Program" and the second to Oregon Humanities for "This Land."


Our Work

We believe federal funding for the humanities is vital to a thriving democracy.

Since our founding in 1977, our members have always been our top priority.

We are dedicated to strengthening awareness of the critical role the humanities play in everyday American life.

Humanities on the Hill

A National Advocacy Event in the Nation's Capital

Every March, councils come together in Washington, DC to advocate for humanities funding and talk with their congressional members about the important work of the councils, which reach constituents in almost every congressional district. This three-day event features a briefing, congressional reception, and members-only debrief. In 2019, Humanities on the Hill takes place from March 5-7, 2019.
