Grant Description
Grants to USA and territories nonprofit organizations, government agencies, tribes, and IHEs to host humanities programming for K-12 teachers. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take up to one month to complete.

Most fundamentally, institutes:

  • Foster new fields of study and/or revitalize existing areas of inquiry
  • Strengthen humanities teaching and learning in the classroom
  • Build lasting communities that foster participants’ intellectual and professional collaboration

Institutes should:

  • Ground the study in significant humanities texts and related resources
  • Explore multiple, rigorous approaches to the topic
  • Consider how the topic engages recent developments in the scholarship, teaching, and curricula of participants’ professional settings
  • Provide opportunities for deep and collaborative engagement with the topic
  • Model excellent scholarship, teaching, and collegial dialogue
  • Reach the widest possible audience for whom the topic is relevant
