Nevada Humanities gives grants to nonprofit 501(c)(3) organizations and entities such as local and tribal governments, libraries, and educational institutions to support public humanities projects and programs that promote community through various forms of engagement. This may be through face-to-face dialogue, such as lectures, forums, and round-table discussions, but also 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.

Nevada Humanities grant application deadlines:

Project Grants (awards of up to $5,000) March 10 of each year

Mini-Grants (awards of up to $1,000) Rolling deadline

Planning Grants (awards of up to $1,000) Rolling deadline
