Wednesday, August 13, 2014
One original and 5 hard copies due to The Humanities Council SC offices prior to 5:00 p.m. This deadline is for programs that start after November 1, 2014.
Preliminary drafts are strongly encouraged and will be accepted any time prior to the deadline listed above. Preliminary drafts can be submitted by email, fax, or mail.
The Humanities CouncilSC makes several categories of grants available to statewide nonprofit organizations, including major grants, mini and planning grants, and council program grants.
The grants program has always been the foundation of the Council’s public support of the humanities, and we have funded a variety of projects, from major documentaries broadcast on national public television to small-scale genealogies and oral histories at the local level. The Council awarded its first grant in the spring of 1973 and recently has awarded approximately $200,000 a year in grant monies.
