The Humanities CouncilSC is a statewide nonprofit and the state program of the National Endowment for the Humanities. In 2013, the Council celebrated 40 years of serving South Carolinians.
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.
