Grant workshops to be held May 10, 15

Indiana Humanities will host two grant workshops this spring for nonprofits seeking funding for public programs in history, preservation, literature and other humanities fields.

Indiana Humanities will host two grant workshops this spring for nonprofits seeking funding for public programs in history, preservation, literature and other humanities fields. The 90-minute sessions will be held at 9:30 a.m. on May 10 in Terre Haute at the Vigo County Public Library and at 9:30 a.m. on May 15 in Portland at the Jay County Public Library.

The workshop will provide program inspiration and information about how to write and submit a successful grant proposal to Indiana Humanities. Participants will also learn how to tap into other program opportunities and support from Indiana Humanities.

In 2017, Indiana Humanities awarded nearly $140,000 to nonprofits throughout the state to sponsor public humanities programs such as workshops, lectures, exhibits, historic preservation education, digital projects and the production of humanities resources. Additional funds will be available in 2018 for Quantum Leap grants which provide support for experimental programs that combine the humanities with science, technology, engineering, math and/or medicine.

The workshop is free and open to the public. Indiana Humanities staff will discuss the various grant opportunities in greater depth, focusing on the specific requirements and goals of each program. There will be time for participants to ask questions and discuss their ideas.
