Nevada Humanities Grants

Nevada Humanities to Hold Informational Grant Meetings in Henderson, Las Vegas, Reno, and Elko

 

Nevada Humanities will hold a series of four, free informational grant meetings in Las Vegas, Reno, and Elko open to anyone interested in learning more about applying for project grant funding through Nevada Humanities, and about a new funding initiative offered by the National Endowment for the Humanities.

 

Nevada Humanities offers grants of up to $5,000 to nonprofit organizations and government entities, such as libraries and schools, to fund humanities-based public programs and educational programs. Nevada Humanities funds projects that encourage community engagement and conversation. This may take the form of face-to-face dialogue, such as lectures, forums, and round-table discussions, or through programs that stimulate thought and reflection, such as media productions, film screenings, exhibitions, local history projects, and projects that explore local culture and Nevada’s diverse heritage and unique places.

 

The Nevada Humanities grant application deadline is March 10, 2018, for projects taking place beginning July 1, 2018, through June 30, 2019. Applications requesting $1,000 or less may be submitted at any time at least ten weeks prior to the proposed project date. Grant guidelines are available on the Nevada Humanities website at www.nevadahumanities.org.

 

The informational grant meetings to discuss these opportunities will take place in four locations and by individual appointment upon request:
