Arizona Humanities supports innovative, community-based projects that use humanities disciplines to connect Arizonans to the cultures, peoples, and histories of the state and beyond. We welcome proposals from a wide range of nonprofit organizations and encourages projects that are innovative in their approach toward the humanities and public programming.
Through disciplines such as literature, history, philosophy, languages, art and music history, architecture, folklore, and comparative religion, humanities projects offer ways to investigate, evaluate, discover, record, and articulate the meaning of human experience.
Mini Grants are small grants of up to $2,000 that are available year-round to support innovative public programs that increase understanding of the human experience. Mini Grants can be used for capacity building, program planning, and implementation. The goal of Mini Grants is to foster the capacity-building of small organizations with limited funding, and encourage partnerships and collaboration between nonprofits. While larger institutions can still apply for Mini Grants, they must partner with a smaller institution that will lead the program or project.
Project Grants are competitive grants supporting public programming across Arizona using the humanities to provide context, depth, and perspective to the Arizona experience and explore issues of significance to Arizonans. Organizations may request up to $10,000 to support their program implementation.
Grant applications must be submitted no later 5 p.m. Arizona Time on the due date.
