Working with Humanities Experts

We have seven clearly stated criteria that board and staff use for judging grant proposals. They are listed in our Grant Guidelines. One is that projects should be firmly grounded in the humanities:

Strong public humanities programs engage humanities experts and community members so that both local knowledge and academic expertise are respected.

So what, exactly, do we mean by 'humanities expert?'

This week Grant Program Director Mark Livengood gives examples to help you understand the nuances of best practices for working with Humanities Experts.

UPCOMING DEADLINES: August 1 (Mini-grants) and August 15 (Major Grants)

2015 Grant Awards
Over $75,000 Awarded in Major Grants!

Earlier this month our board members met on the Menominee Reservation to review grant applications. There were an exceptional number of proposals, so the board had some tough choices to make.

There is never enough money to support all the valuable public humanities projects around the state.

However, we are extremely proud to be able provide major grants to these nine projects!

Festivals, films, and [art]ifacts!
Please take a moment to congratulate your colleagues, share this announcement with a friend, and plan to check out some of these exciting projects. Details will be listed, as always, on our
Calendar of Events.
