Grants to Guam nonprofit organizations, institutions, and ad-hoc groups to support humanities activities that are available to the public. First-time applicants must attend a mandatory workshop. Some grants require the applicant to submit a preliminary proposal prior to submitting an application. Funding is intended to support innovative programming that encourages discussion between diverse groups.
Eligible formats for programs may include, but are not limited to:
Humanities Guåhan encourages innovative program formats, particularly programs that stimulate discussion between diverse groups. The primary consideration with regard to format is whether it is appropriate to the audience and project content, as well as whether it is cost-effective.
For 2020, HG is offering mini-grants, regular grants, and media grants. For more details, see the Guidelines in the Supporting Documents field below.
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. For more information, see the Guidelines in the Supporting Documents section below.
