Foundation / Corporation
Grants ranging from $2,001 to $10,000 to Wyoming nonprofit organizations, government agencies, schools, colleges, libraries, and museums for humanities projects benefitting public audiences. Projects must be focused on the humanities, centered around a public event, and involve a humanities scholar.
The project must be humanities-centered. The humanities encompass the study of all forms of human cultural expression: our history, arts, literature, philosophy, religion, laws, cultural studies, and languages. These break down further into subsets such as ecological humanities and gender studies. However, projects like arts performances that do not have a Q&A or talk-back session to delve into the meaning and context of the experience of art fall into the realm of Wyoming Arts Council funding.
The request must be built around a public event. Specifically, Wyoming Humanities will not fund research projects. If the project isn’t about directly engaging a public audience (through outreach components like lectures, documentaries, digital medias, curated exhibits, moderated film series, etc.) then it is probably not a fit for Wyoming Humanities funding.
The project must have a humanities scholar in a central role (loosely defined as MA or higher in a humanities field directly related to the project).
