Wyoming Humanities (WYH)

Deadline Date:



Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $10,000 to Wyoming nonprofit organizations and agencies to provide public humanities programming. Applicants must submit a letter of intent prior to submitting an application. Funding is intended for programs in the areas of arts, history, literature, philosophy, religion, laws, cultural studies, and languages.

The goal of Wyoming Humanities’ grants is to support public programs that use the humanities to explore the state’s histories, stories, issues, and connections between groups and communities. Expansion grants are grants intended to fund larger programs, both in terms of scope and impact. 

Key Requirements:

  • The project must be humanities-centered.
  • The program must be built around a public event. 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).

Pre-Application Information:

‍Please note: in order to ensure it’s worth your time to fill out a full grant application, a letter of intent is required before the full application can be accessed or submitted. This must be submitted through the online portal, not via email, and may increase application time by up to 5 days. Please plan accordingly.

All applicants are required to report their unique DUNS number on all applications. A DUNS number may be obtained by telephone (866-705-5711) or this website: Organizations (or their fiscal sponsors) must have an active federal SAM number for the entire grant period in order to receive Expansion Grant funding.
