Humanities Festival Grants

Guidelines for Humanities Festival Grant Applications

The New Jersey Council for the Humanities awards Humanities Festival Grants of up to $500 once a year in celebration of National Arts and Humanities Month.  Every October, nonprofit organizations and public entities across the state sponsor events tied to the Council’s annual festival theme. Some recent themes have included Celebrating 350 Years of New Jersey (2014), Sports in American Culture & Communities (2013), and The American Presidency (2012).

Once the Council’s 2015 Humanities Festival Grant Program Guidelines are available, they will be posted here. If you are not already on the Council’s grants mailing list, you can sign up to receive updates on the Humanities Festival Grant program.
