"The healthiest communities are those that are built around active libraries, museums, and other cultural centers, that have a strong sense of their own history and identity, that have good quality schools, along with mechanisms for involving their residents in the process of solving problems and planning for the future. Supporting these kinds of communities is what the state humanities councils are all about." - Esther Mackintosh, FSHC President, at a White House briefing

The Public Scholars Project (PSP), formerly known as the Horizon Speakers Bureau, is a cost effective and accessible service that provides high quality humanities programs to organizations throughout the state.
With over 100 programs and 65 scholars, the PSP reaches many New Jersey citizens. Each year, the council subsidizes programs for 200 humanities presentations to be hosted by New Jersey nonprofits on a first come, first served basis. With the exception of a nominal $50 administrative fee, which is 10% of the total program cost, the program is provided at no charge to the host site for the subsidized awards.
