Nevada Humanities Grants for Nonprofit Organizations and Education Institutions
Apply for a grant and partner with us in our mission
Nevada Humanities gives grants to nonprofit organizations and education institutions to support humanities projects and programs that promote community through various forms of engagement. This may be through face-to-face dialogue, such as lectures, forums and round-table discussions, but also through programs that stimulate thought and reflection, such as media productions, film screenings, exhibitions, local history projects, and projects that explore local culture and Nevada’s diverse heritage and unique places.
Grant proposals for funding are due on March 10 and October 10 of each year. Applications requesting $1,000 or less may be submitted throughout the year, but at least eight weeks in advance of the event. Grant applications are submitted by email to grants[at]nevadahumanities.org.
The grant guidelines provide further information on the centrality of the humanities, eligibility requirements, ineligible expenses, the points to cover in the project narrative, completing the budget form, cost-sharing, and tips for success.
Nevada Humanities staff members are available to answer questions and to review draft proposals in our Las Vegas office at 702/895-1878.
