Communities around Washington have important stories to tell and issues to discuss. Humanities Washington’s grants program provides the financial resources for people to come together to talk, discuss, debate, feel, think, and tell stories through the lens of the humanities. Humanities Washington supports existing efforts as well as new opportunities for grassroots projects conceived and implemented locally.
These grants are awarded once per year to projects that highlight the little-known stories of a person or group whose contributions add to the cultural richness and health of Washington State. One grant of $5,000 is awarded through a competitive process and projects require a funding match. Humanities Washington is currently accepting applications for Washington Stories Fund. LOIs are due June 9, 2017, and full proposals are due July 21.
