Grants starting at $2,000 to Nebraska nonprofit organizations, educational institutions, and government agencies for humanities projects featuring a media or digital component. Applicants are encouraged to contact program staff prior to applying. Eligible media include film, radio, television, websites, and other digital media.

All projects must directly impact State residents and involve a humanities scholar. Applications must demonstrate that the humanities are central to the project.

The National Endowment for the Humanities has defined the humanities as including, but not limited to, history, literature, languages, jurisprudence, philosophy, comparative religion, archaeology, ethics, the social sciences when they employ humanistic perspectives, and the history, theory, and criticism of the arts.

All projects must include at least one humanities resource person or “humanist.” Typically, the humanist is a college or university professor in a humanities discipline. If a non-academic humanist is chosen for a project, the applicant must provide sufficient background information on the individual to demonstrate that he or she will capably represent the humanities.

Grants are for more than $2,000.

Projects may begin October 1, 2017 or later.

Any nonprofit group is eligible to apply for grants, including schools, libraries, museums, civic groups, government agencies, service clubs, tribal organizations, professional associations, historical societies, educational institutions and community organizations.
