Quarterly Grants provide funding of up to $10,000 to nonprofits and educational institutions seeking to design and carry out multi-faceted, public humanities projects. Out-of-school adults should be the proposed project’s primary target audience, but proposals that target multi-age groups or link with a high school or other youth initiative are welcome. All organizations must involve a humanities scholar in the planning or implementation of their proposed program to be eligible to receive funding.
Quarterly Grant proposals are accepted four times a year, with deadlines in February, May, August, and November. An organization’s proposed program should begin no earlier than 90 days after the submission deadline.
Recently funded projects include:
- “30 Pages in 30 Days,” a playwright competition, Prescott Park Arts Festival, Portsmouth
- “Steinbeck’s The Grapes of Wrath: More Relevant Today Than Ever,” Fireseed Alliance, Amherst
- “First Folio: The Book That Gave Us Shakespeare,” exhibit, performances, and discussions, Currier Museum of Art, Manchester

UPCOMING DEADLINE: Aug. 1st
