Through the Humanities Montana Research Fellowships Grant program, scholars and writers can receive up to $4,000 in funding for research projects related to Montana and the region and involving one or more of the humanities disciplines. Applicants’ research must result in a product that can be presented to Montana audiences. Products may take the form of exhibits, narrated computer and/or web-based products, newspaper or magazine article series, books, journal articles, etc. Fellowship recipients must give Humanities Montana a copy of the end product and present two public programs based on their research.
Applications are accepted year-round and are reviewed once a year following the Dec. 20 deadline.
Humanities Montana encourages scholars and writers to submit research proposals that stimulate statewide dialogue on humanities topics, foster discussion between humanities scholars and the public, strengthen cooperative relationships among communities and cultural organizations (museums, libraries, schools, tribal organizations, etc.), and enrich civic discourse among the state’s diverse cultures and across its geographical distances.
