“We are so pleased with Speakers in the Schools. We operate on a very slim budget and reach a lot of different students and this opportunity is invaluable for us to bring humanities education to our program. We can’t say enough positive things about this. Thank you so very much for operating this and making it so easy. We plan to contact Humanities Montana again for future programs. Thank you!”
Ovando School Teacher
Humanities Montana will enrich the lives of all Montanans by fostering inquiry and stimulating civil and informed conversations about the human experience.
Since 1972, Humanities Montana has benefited hundreds of Montana organizations and thousands of its citizens, providing support for public programs in the humanities throughout the state. Humanities Montana’s educational and cultural programs help Montanans develop a deeper understanding of humanity’s values and beliefs, intellectual achievements, diverse cultures, and heritages.
In partnership with The Pulitzer Prizes and supported by a grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, forty-nine councils will launch hundreds of programs and events exploring the importance of being an informed citizen and what that means in today’s society.
Calling all outstanding public humanities programs! The Federation is now accepting nominations for the 2016 Schwartz Prize. Submission deadline is August 17, 2016.
