Humanities Nebraska (HN)
Grants starting at $2,000 to Nebraska nonprofit organizations, government agencies, schools, libraries, and museums for humanities projects. Please note that Nebraska residents must be the primary audience for all grant activities. Grants are given only for projects or programs that take place in Nebraska or have direct significance to Nebraska.
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. A resume of no more than two pages and a letter from the scholar explaining his or her involvement in the project must be included for every scholar.
