Humanities GrantsMaking Humanities Happen throughout Vermont
Our grant program supports humanities-related projects of other nonprofit organizations. Council awards are re-grants of federal funds from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), and as such grantees must comply with all applicable NEH and federal policies.
Vermont Humanities will reject any project that does not involve at least one humanities discipline. Applications are considered twice a year. The maximum award is $5,000, and grantees must provide, at minimum, a one-to-one cost share (which may consist of cash and/or in-kind contributions). We will consider proposals for new, as well as already established, programs.
