Humanities Grants

Helping humanities happen throughout Vermont.

Project Grants

Vermont Humanities’ traditional Project Grants support nonprofit organizations offering Vermont audiences an opportunity to engage with the humanities in their communities. This grant funds community projects and curriculum development. Awards range from $1,000 to $5,000.

Fundable projects include:

  • Community programming that invites participation in humanities discourse
  • Curriculum development with plans to share the work to increase access to the humanities
  • Humanities experiences designed to support a specific affinity group or to encourage interaction among more than one affinity groups

Both new and existing projects are eligible to apply.
