Grants ranging from $500 to $5,000 to Louisiana nonprofit organizations and institutions for humanities projects that are accessible for local residents. Funding is intended for a range of programs including documentary projects, scholarly research, digital humanities projects, and humanities-based educational initiatives. Humanities scholars must play a central role in all stages of a project as planners, speakers, resource persons, panelists, and/or evaluators. Representatives of the community must be involved in all phases of a project to complement the presence of the humanities scholars.
The LEH promotes subjects and themes that fall within one or more of the following concentration areas:
- General Humanities
- Education and Teacher Institutes
- Louisiana History and Culture
- Museums and the Humanities
Eligible projects include free public humanities programs that involve audience participation and discussion; documentary photography, podcast, and radio projects; digital humanities projects including websites and online documentation of Louisiana history and culture, new and continuing scholarly research about Louisiana, and assistance with publication projects and humanities-based educational initiatives.
LEH encourages projects that generate new content that can be incorporated into "64 Parishes" magazine and website, two LEH initiatives that make the humanities available to the general public.
For specific program guidelines and details, see the General Application Guidelines page in Pre-Application Information below.
