SC Humanities makes several categories of grants available to statewide nonprofit organizations, including major grants, mini and planning grants, fast-track literary 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.
