The Federation has just released the 2019 Democracy and the Informed Citizen Request for Proposals. This Mellon-funded grant initiative is a tribute to the work of the councils over the past two years to engage citizens in examining the critical role the humanities and journalism play in our democracy. We are thrilled that the Mellon Foundation is giving us the opportunity to continue this work.
Please send a Letter of Intent to submit a proposal by August 23, 2019. The Federation is also scheduling two conference calls, one in July and one in August, for councils to discuss their 2017-18 projects and brainstorm ideas for this next round.
