Grants to USA nonprofit organizations, government agencies, tribes, and IHEs for humanities programs related to wars and conflicts. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take up to one month to complete. The purpose of the program is to support the study and discussion of important humanities sources about war, in the belief that these sources can help U.S. military veterans and others think more deeply about the issues raised by war and military service. The Dialogues program is designed to reach military veterans; however, men and women in active service, military families, and interested members of the public may also participate.

The Dialogues on the Experience of War program supports the study and discussion of humanities sources that address the experiences of military service and war from a wide variety of perspectives. In recognition of the importance of the humanities in helping Americans to understand the meaning and experiences of military service and war, Dialogues projects encourage veterans and civilians to reflect collectively on such topics as civic engagement, veteran identity, the legacies of war, service, and homecoming. Project teams should include humanities scholars, military veterans, and individuals with relevant experience.

Dialogues projects may take a wide variety of forms, including:

  • Bridge programs for veterans seeking to further or resume their education
  • Community discussion series hosted by veterans’ organizations and cultural institutions such as museums or theaters 
  • Undergraduate or graduate courses that train students to lead discussions on campus or in the local community
  • Seminars for members of the public
  • Reading and discussion programs for veterans in the justice system or in group housing
  • Discussion series centered on local historical collections, memorial sites, film series, or exhibits

Dialogues projects must include:

  • Discussion programs: The convening (in person or virtual) of at least two sustained discussion series focused on humanities resources and themes that address the experiences of war and military service. Dialogues discussion groups may include exclusively veterans (including a subset of veterans such as students or residents of a group facility); civilians; military-affiliated persons; or any mix of these groups.
  • Preparatory programs: The creation of an in person or virtual preparatory program to recruit, train, and mentor a sufficient number of individuals to serve as discussion leaders for the series.
