The Minnesota Humanities Center’s grant programs provide opportunities to partner with organizations offering robust humanities programming in communities across Minnesota.
2018 Veterans’ Voices 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 Veterans’ Voices program, MHC is seeking humanities-based projects that celebrate the rich diversity of voices, identities, stories, and experiences of Minnesota’s Veterans across the state.
Mini-grants for short-term projects will be awarded to organizations which are interested in implementing new, small-scale projects or enhancing existing programming around Veteran engagement with the community throughout Veterans’ Voices month (October) or Veterans Day (November 11). Projects and/or activities should focus on bridging the divide between military personnel/Veterans and civilians in the community using 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 and/or interactive humanities learning experiences.
