Humanities Washington Opportunity Grants
- Budget: $1000.00
Eligibility: Opportunity Grants support small and rural organizations carrying out public humanities presentations and events.
The humanities are the ideas, questions, and disciplines that help us document and interpret the
world around us—and the “public humanities” bring these to the general public through wideranging
programs and activities. Eligible programs help our communities understand complex
social issues through disciplines such as history, literature, and philosophy. They provide a
framework for examining how we think, what we value, and what it means to be human. By
participating in these programs, we hone skills of inquiry, analysis, reflection, evaluation, and
conversation, enriching both our private lives and our communities. Examples might be a
community forum on a timely topic, or a panel discussion with the general public about some
aspect of a community’s heritage.
Any nonprofit organization or public agency is eligible to apply for an Opportunity Grant. While
applicants do not need to be incorporated or have tax-exempt status, they must be organized for
nonprofit purposes and funded activities must clearly serve a Washington State audience. In
addition, organizations that have previously received Humanities Washington funding must
submit a final report before applying again with a new project.
Note: Individuals are not eligible to receive Humanities
