Mini-grants of up to $2,000 are available year-round to support public programs that draw upon the humanities to increase understanding of any aspect of human experience. These grants are available for both program planning and implementation. Speakers or consultants who are funded by a mini-grant must be qualified scholars in a humanities discipline.
An organization might apply for a mini-grant to support:
- hiring a speaker;
- securing the services of a humanities consultant or exhibit designer;
- developing public programs that promote the discussion and preservation of local history, or that are related to an unexpected local, national, or international event.
The Wyoming Humanities Council encourages organizations new to our grants program to apply for mini-grant funds.
