The Humanities Texas in partnership with the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEA) is seeking applications for its 2021 Major Grants to provide financial support to nonprofit organizations and institutions for humanities programs that serve public audiences.
All funded programs are firmly grounded in the humanities and are directed to the general public, both adults and young people, outside of the regular school or college classroom. Programs targeting special audiences such as K–12 teachers, ethnic and community groups, or professional groups are also welcome.
- Major grants for community projects – Major grants for community projects fund comprehensive public programs such as lectures, seminars, and conferences; book and film discussions; interpretive exhibitions and materials; town forums and civic discussions; and teacher workshops. Programs should reflect substantial participation by both humanities scholars and members of the target audience(s).
- Major grants for media projects – Major grants for media projects fund film, radio, television, or interactive programming related to the humanities. Applicants may request funds for any phase of the project, including scripting, development, production, post-production, and in some cases, distribution and free public screenings. Humanities scholars should play an integral role in determining the content and approach of the project.
- Grants are awarded to not-for-profit educational, cultural, and civic organizations.
- Sponsors must have, or have applied for, tax-exempt status from the Internal Revenue Service.
