Oklahoma Humanities (OH)
Grants to Oklahoma nonprofit organizations for humanities projects that engage public audiences. Applicants must submit a proposal draft prior to submitting a full application. Funding is intended for projects that have humanities as the central focus and that enable exploration, interpretation, or analysis. Eligible projects support the council's mission to strengthen communities by helping Oklahomans learn about the human experience, understand new perspectives, and participate knowledgeably in civic life.
Activities should be made accessible to all members of a community, and the project must be balanced and avoid advocacy of a particular social or political view. Projects may be structured in a variety of ways: discussion programs, lectures, panel discussions, websites, audio or video productions, and exhibitions.
Specific academic disciplines encompassed by the term humanities include archeology, art history and criticism, comparative religion, cultural anthropology, ethics, history, jurisprudence, language, linguistics, literature, philosophy, and those aspects of the social sciences which employ a philosophical or historical, rather than a quantitative approach. The humanities should not be confused with particular philosophies, such as secular humanism, or with specific social movements, such as humanitarianism. They should also be distinguished from the creative or performing arts.
Humanities scholars must be involved in the planning and implementation of the program. OH-funded projects should include dialogue between humanities scholars and public audiences. It is the role of the scholar to present, explain, or interpret ideas, beliefs, and other cultural contexts implicit in the program. See qualifications in Additional Eligibility, below.
