The Idaho Humanities Council invites proposals for Mini and Major Grants and Teacher Incentive Grants from organizations and individuals for consideration in the IHC’s next grant round. The deadline for grant proposals is January 15, 2017. Prospective applicants are strongly encouraged to review the guidelines and contact IHC staff well in advance of the deadline to discuss project ideas before beginning a proposal.
Mini Grants (under $2,000) and Major Grants (over $2,000) over the years have supported museum and library exhibits, oral history projects, heritage tourism projects, special lectures, the preservation of historical photo archives, Chautauqua programs, community-wide reading programs, humanities-focused conferences and a variety of projects and programs that inspire community dialogue in the humanities. In addition to other topics, the IHC this year has a special interest in seeing proposals that offer the opportunity for public dialogue on issues of race and ethnicity.
Teacher Incentive Grants, limited to $1,000, are awarded to K-12 teachers to enhance their teaching of the humanities in the classroom.
Grant guidelines and the online application are available on the IHC website at www.idahohumanities.org The website also includes a listing of recent grant awards and other general information.
