Does your organization or program bring two distinct demographics of Washingtonians together? Do you have an idea to connect the dots between various residents in Washington, DC? If so, you may qualify for one of eight $5,000 Who’s a Washingtonian? awards.

We invite you to register for one of two upcoming workshops at the Humanities Council of Washington, DC on July 15th and 17th. Click here to register. 


For this program, the Humanities Council requests proposals for projects that actively seek to spark dialogue between groups of residents that have historically been isolated from one another either geographically or culturally. Using the humanities disciplines as lenses, these projects will help Washingtonians better understand the ties that bind them such as music, literature, history, religion, and language. Each “Who”s a Washingtonian?” grant proposal must feature the following three components:

  1. A clearly articulated effort to link two geographic or cultural groups in the city that rarely come in contact with one another.
  2. A clearly defined theme, explored through the humanities disciplines, that the two groups will explore collaboratively.
  3. A “civic reflection” component
