Grants of up to $2,500 to Georgia nonprofit organizations, agencies, and educational, civic, and cultural entities to provide eligible types of programming to communities throughout the State. Eligible activities include, but are not limited to, workshops, exhibitions, public seminars, lecture series, and panel discussions, living history programs, historic walking and driving tours, author talks, literary festivals, and reading and discussion programs. Georgia Humanities awards grants for cultural programs that bring together and strengthen communities through dialogue and shared experience.

Georgia Humanities supports the efforts of nonprofit organizations seeking to foster connections between people and ideas. Through a competitive process, Georgia Humanities awards grants to such cultural, civic, and educational entities as museums, libraries, universities, and historical societies for a range of projects, including walking tours, exhibitions, author talks, lecture series, and literary festivals. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, proposed grant programs can be completely virtual.

Georgia Humanities awards program grants to support public humanities efforts across the state that are creative in their approach to organizing and delivering the knowledge and understanding of the humanities to the general public. Proposed projects should apply the vitality and substance of the humanities to the concerns of Georgia‚Äôs citizens and provide for a meaningful experience for the local community. 

Programs must involve at least one humanities scholar, bring the public together for discussion and exchange, and be designed for and open to public audience(s). All proposed projects should be open to the public at no or minimal cost, and should be designed for diverse audiences and points of view.

Estimated Size of Grant:

Up to $2,500

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Georgia Humanities awards program grants to Georgia-based nonprofit organizations. Georgia Humanities does not award grants to individuals. Georgia Humanities has previously awarded grants to such cultural, civic, and educational entities as museums, public libraries, colleges/universities, historical societies, historic homes and sites, historic preservation and archaeological organizations, and government entities in support of a range of projects. Organizations are not required to be incorporated as a 501(c)(3) to apply.

College/university applicants should interpret all eligibility requirements at the department level, i.e. Georgia Humanities considers college/university departments as entities independent of one another for the purposes of program grant award determinations. However, it should be noted that all applicants from the same college/university per grant cycle are considered in the same pool of applications.

Organizations that have an open program grant with Georgia Humanities are ineligible to apply for additional support until the outstanding project has submitted a final report.
