HumanitiesDC is now accepting applications for the following grant programs. Proposals are due June 3.

Humanitini Curator Grant – HumanitiesDC is offering the opportunity for you to present your original humanities research through the Humanitini Curator Grant. Each Curator creates a public humanities event based on their research or area of expertise. As part of the application, prospective curators need to fully describe this research topic, and where it is situated within a wider humanities field. Applicants may request up to $5,000.

Humanities Festival & Gatherings Grant – The grant provides support to nonprofit organizations interested in creating relevant, diverse, and unique public humanities programs for the people of Washington DC through the execution of Festivals, Events, Meetings or Conferences.  The funding will support in person, virtual or hybrid projects that are open to the public and include some portion of free or discounted programming. Applicants may request up to $25,000.

Capacity Building Grant – This opportunity will provide general operating support to Washington D.C.-based, humanities-focused non-profit organizations for the purposes of engaging in capacity building activities that will help strengthen the organizations. With this support, organizations will be better positioned to continue producing high-quality humanities work for the benefit of the District and its residents. Applicants may request up to $25,000.

These awards are granted with funds from the Washington, DC government via the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities’ Humanities Grant Program.
