Grant Opportunities

The Minnesota Humanities Center’s grant programs provide opportunities to partner with organizations offering robust humanities programming in communities across Minnesota.

2018 Mini-Grant

The Minnesota Humanities Center (MHC) is announcing the launch of a competitive grant opportunity through the Minnesota State Legacy Amendment Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund (ACHF). Aligning with its foundational offerings around absent narratives, MHC is seeking humanities-based projects that celebrate the rich diversity of voices, identities, stories, and experiences of Minnesotans.

Mini-grants (up to $7,500 each) will be awarded to organizations who are interested in implementing new small-scale projects or enhancing existing programming with humanities-based activities and subjects, including but not limited to: language, literature, history, philosophy, ethics, civics, storytelling, discussion and conversation, poetry, and other types of participatory or interactive humanities learning experiences.
