Partner with Nevada Humanities. Apply for a Grant.

Nevada Humanities gives grants to Nevada nonprofit 501(c)(3) organizations and entities such as local and tribal governments, libraries, and educational institutions to support public humanities projects and programs that promote community through 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.
