Wyoming Humanities (WYH)

Deadline Date:

Description:

Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $15,000 to Wyoming nonprofit organizations and state agencies for humanities-related projects involving more than one discipline. A Letter of Intent must be submitted prior to submission of the full proposal. Funding is intended to support innovative projects that engage the audience and lead to a greater understanding of the subjects at hand. Projects must involve at least one humanities subject and include participation by scholars or professionals with expertise in the relevant disciplines.

Cross-Pollination grants are intended to fund ambitious, interdisciplinary projects. An example of a project might help Wyomingites examine the history of the Vietnam war through literature and song, or make use of cultural anthropology and geology to help Wyomingites explore their relationship with water. In the case of the second example, the project requirement of a qualified scholar or expert would mean that a cultural anthropologist and a geologist must be integrally involved in the project.

Estimated Size of Grant:

Up to $15,000

Term of Contract:

Projects may start a minimum of 90 days after the grant application due date.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Interested organizations must have a state or federally recognized nonprofit group or state agency (library, school, college, museum), with a valid tax EIN and DUNs number to receive funds to sponsor the grant and manage the funds. The WYH can only fund registered non-profits.

Research projects will not be funded.

Pre-Application Information:

Deadline is once per year: November 1, 2019.

A letter of intent is required before the full application can be accessed or submitted. This must be submitted through the online portal, not via email, and may increase application time by up to 5 days. Please plan accordingly.

Applicants will hear decision within approximately 70 days of due date.

Staff is more than happy to work with you as you develop your idea into a project; however, the WYH cannot guarantee first reads on drafts less than two week from the submittal date.

If you have a project in mind, get started on the grant proposal as early as you can. Funding in the later portion of the Wyoming Humanities fiscal year (August 1 – Oct 31) is generally limited, and grants submitted during this time may not be considered or funded in time.

Grant funds must be matched 1:1 with non-Federal dollars. This match can be both in cash and in-kind.
