Grants starting at $2,000 to Nebraska nonprofit organizations, educational institutions, and government agencies for humanities projects that have a media or digital component. All projects must directly impact State residents and involve a humanities scholar. Applications must demonstrate that the humanities are central to the project.

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.
