Quick Grants provide funding of up to $1,500 for humanities projects that bring historical, cultural, or ethical perspectives to bear on topics and issues of interest to North Dakota communities. Proposed programs should encourage participants to think critically about fundamental questions of value, purpose, and meaning; promote better understanding of ourselves and others, past and present; be conducted in a spirit of open and informed inquiry, providing multiple viewpoints, where applicable; and involve partnerships between community organizations, cultural institutions, and scholars in the humanities. Any nonprofit organization is eligible to apply for a Quick Grant, including schools, churches, community service groups, museums, historical societies, libraries, colleges, governmental or tribal entities, and ad hoc groups to oversee a specific project.
Quick Grant applications can be submitted at any time, but the proposed program should start no sooner than six weeks after the date of submission. Grants which further North Dakota Humanities Council’s special initiative “Justice: Rethinking America’s Criminal Justice System” will be given special funding priority.
Examples of funded projects include:
- “Sacred Stones and a Pipeline,” Prairie Public Broadcasting
- “2017 Women’s Voices,” Dickinson Area Community Foundation
- “Pulitzer Prize Winning Plays,” Greater Grand Folks Community Theatre
