The Florida Humanities Council is accepting applications from Florida nonprofit organizations for the planning and implementation of public humanities projects related to Florida or of interest to local communities.
Mini-grants of up to $5,000 will be awarded in support of the planning and implementation of public humanities programs and resources that meet the needs and interest of local communities. Projects may include lectures or panel discussions, reading and discussion groups, film series, oral history projects, exhibitions, and the development of cultural resources that complement public programming. Eligible projects must be rooted in one or more of the disciplines of the humanities, enlist the participation of humanities scholars and/or experts in the project’s planning and execution, and engage the public in thoughtful and informed activities that explore humanities topics, especially those related to Florida or of interest to Floridians.
Priority will be given to proposals from organizations with annual budgets of less than $1 million, projects that reach new and/or underserved audiences, and/or projects that build on partnerships between two or more organizations or institutions.
To be eligible, organizations must be recognized as tax exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, be based in Florida, and serve Floridians.
For complete program guidelines and application instructions, as well as a list of previously funded projects, see the Florida Humanities Council website.
