Quick Grants provide funding of up to $1,000 to nonprofits and educational institutions seeking to hold a single humanities-centered event or a short event series. For example, a Quick Grant might be used to pay for the costs of a single lecture by a visiting professor, author, or poet; a panel discussion; or a community conversation series on a book, film, or set of materials facilitated by a humanities scholar. All organizations must involve a humanities scholar in the planning or implementation of their proposed program to be eligible to receive funding.
Quick Grant proposals are accepted six times a year, with deadlines in November, January, March, May, July, and September. An organization’s proposed program should begin no earlier than 60 days after the submission deadline.
Recently funded projects include:
- “Global Tipping Points: Insecure World,” World Affairs Council of New Hampshire, Manchester
- “Teacher Workshop: The Civil War,” Historical Society of Cheshire County, Keene
- “A Walk in the Woods: A Literature and Garden Festival,” Friends of Bedrock Gardens, Lee
