BOISE — The Idaho Humanities Council invites organizations and individuals to submit proposals for mini and major grants, teacher incentive grants and research fellowships for consideration at the council's fall grant round.
Grant guidelines are available at www.idahohumanities.org under "Grants."
The deadline for grant proposals is Sept. 15. Drafts are due by Aug. 15.
Prospective applicants are strongly encouraged to contact IHC staff in advance of the deadline to discuss their project ideas before drafting a proposal.
Mini grants of less than $2,000 and major grants have supported museum and library exhibits; oral history projects; heritage tourism projects; literary events; special lectures; the preservation of historical photo archives; Chautauqua programs; community-wide reading programs; humanities-focused conferences; and a variety of projects and programs that inspire community dialogue in the humanities.
Teacher incentive grants are limited to $1,000 and are awarded to K-12 teachers to enhance the way they teach the humanities in the classroom.
Research fellowships are special awards to scholars to support research in any field of the humanities. They are for up to $3,500 — awarded only once a year. They may be used to support expenses related to research including travel to special archives, lodging and related expenses. They are competitive; IHC awards up to four research fellowships each fall.
