Humanities Grants

Making Humanities Happen throughout Vermont

Humanities Grants

Our grant program supports humanities-related projects of other nonprofit organizations serving Vermont audiences. See our full instructions on how to apply for a grant.

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.

If you still have questions after consulting the guidelines, we welcome inquiries at any time and are happy to provide guidance on your application. Contact .
