Donor Name: Humanities Texas
County: All Counties
Type of Grant: Grant
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 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).
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. Examples of past grant recipients include (but are not limited to):
