>Grant Opportunity – NY Council for the Humanities


The NY Council for the Humanities awards Major Grants (up to $20,000) and Mini Grants (up to $2,500). Council grants are meant to provide financial support for public programs presented by not-for-profit organizations across New York State that bring humanities scholars and scholarship to a general public audience. Special consideration is given to projects that reach underserved populations; to projects that, without our funding, might not happen; and to organizations that need financial seed money so that they may secure long-term support from other sources.

The next Major Grant application deadlines, for up to $20,000, are September 15, 2008 and March 15, 2009 ; applications for Mini Grants, for up to $2,500, are accepted on an ongoing basis throughout the year. To learn more about both grants programs, review eligibility, and see past awarded grants please visit For other inquiries, Council program officers are available for consultation via email or by phone at 212.233.1131.
