Examples of programs eligible for funding include:

  • Interpretive exhibits
  • Content-based website enhancements
  • Living history and museum theater presentations that include interpretive elements
  • Presentations in the creative and performing arts that include humanities-based discussion
  • Teachers’ workshops in the humanities
  • Panel discussions and other types of public forums on humanities-related topics
  • Media and publication projects that support the mission of a humanities-based organization or institution

Major Grant requests are reviewed twice a year. Organizations should submit their application by the first work day of April or September. An organization’s proposed program should begin no earlier than 60 days after the submission deadline.
