Foundation / Corporation
National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) - Humanities Guåhan (HG)
Grants to Guam nonprofit organizations, institutions, and groups to support humanities activities that are available to the public. First-time applicants must attend an information workshop prior to applying. Funding is intended to support innovative programming that encourages discussion between diverse groups. The primary consideration with regard to format is whether it is appropriate for the audience and project content, as well as whether it is cost-effective.
Eligible formats for programs may include, but are not limited to:
HG is offering three grant formats: mini-grants, regular grants, and media grants. For additional information, see: http://www.humanitiesguahan.org/sites/default/files/2020_community_grant_guidelines_-_updated_augst_8_2020.pdf#page=4
The humanities include but are not limited to the study of history, modern and classical language, literature, law, philosophy, comparative religion, ethics, and the history, criticism, and theory of the arts. Anthropology, archeology and political science are also considered part of the humanities, as are interdisciplinary areas, such as Pacific studies, CHamoru studies, Micronesian studies, Asian studies, American studies, women and gender studies, ethnic studies, and the study of folklore and folklife. Humanities projects may also apply humanities perspectives to current political, social, or economic concerns and issues.
Proposal Planning Grants may be awarded to applicants for program planning and grant writing assistance for proposals that will be submitted to Humanities Guåhan. The grant is intended primarily for small groups with limited staff or village organizations. The award pays for the services of a scholar to visit the organization, talk with their planning committee about program ideas, and assist in the proposal writing process.
