The Kansas Humanities Council’s Humanities Grants support projects that engage the public with the humanities. There are two types of grants available: Mini Grants (up to $3,500), awarded year-round, and Major Grants (up to $10,000), reviewed three times a year.
The main goal of these grants is to connect Kansans with ideas, people, and places from across time and generations, engage citizens in discussions about humanities themes or topics, offer multiple points of view for the public to consider, and to strengthen a sense of community.
Projects eligible for humanities grants support include a series of public programs specific to a humanities theme, museum exhibitions, film and book discussions, the creation of short documentary films, full-length film documentaries, media projects, and other creative activities.
Requests for Mini Grants are reviewed year-round and are available as funds are available. Requests for Major Grants are reviewed three times a year – Spring, Summer, and Fall.
