Grants of up to $1,000, grants of up to $2,000, and grants of up to $7,500 to Nevada nonprofit organizations government entities, libraries, schools, and tribal governments for humanities programs that benefit local communities. Funding is intended to support programming that engages audiences, stimulates thought, and heightens cultural experiences for residents. Eligible initiatives focus on the humanities and involve humanities scholars in planning and implementation.
Nevada Humanities project grants (Major Project Grants, Mini-Grants, Planning Grants) support innovative humanities projects created primarily for Nevada audiences, or designed to enhance national or international understanding of Nevada issues, culture, and heritage. Projects that will engage diverse audiences and participants are especially encouraged.
Humanities projects are dynamic and may take many forms, including media programs and documentaries, exhibitions, forums and discussions, public dialogue and conversation, workshops, research projects with public components, publications, educational initiatives and programs, and digital productions. Whatever their form, such projects draw upon the humanities, address important issues, and enrich the state’s cultural life. They may explore topics as diverse as Nevada state and local history, traditional culture, civic engagement, oral history and community stories, jurisprudence, social justice, bridging cultures, Nevada’s landscape and built environment, sense of place, and contemporary issues of concern to Nevadans.
Humanities projects are often produced by humanities organizations. A humanities organization has a mission explicitly connected to the humanities along with a track record of specifically working in the humanities, as opposed to a group that occasionally tackles or delves into humanities-based themes or activities. Humanities organizations include, but are not limited to, historical societies and heritage groups, historic homes and sites, archives, oral history programs, folklife organizations, cultural centers, museums, nonprofit libraries, literary organizations, nonprofit educational organizations, historic preservation groups, nonprofit media groups that report on culture, other cultural nonprofits with core missions or activities that center on developing and implementing public humanities programming. Nevada Humanities also strongly encourages partnerships that use the humanities to bridge different fields of inquiry such as history and the sciences or medicine and literature. Nevada Humanities will consider applications for funding from organizations in other fields or endeavors that also have the humanities as central to the project proposed for funding.
Nevada Humanities grant categories:
The humanities must be central to any successful grant proposal and humanities scholars must actively participate in the planning and implementation of the project. Humanities scholars strengthen a project by providing specialized knowledge and skills that encourage and facilitate the exploration of ideas and community dialog. Humanities scholars often have either formal academic backgrounds and credentials grounded in humanities disciplines, or expertise developed through professional training, experience, or immersion in a particular cultural tradition. Nevada Humanities recognizes that knowledge may be acquired differently in various cultures and values such diversity of experience as consistent with its understanding of the humanities.
