Greater Good: Humanities in Academia Grants
The humanities focus on exploring what it means to be human, allowing us to better understand and share our experiences, values, and dreams. For many, access to the humanities began in college, where scholars and thought-leaders challenged us to think creatively and critically, to reason, and to ask questions. Here at Florida Humanities, we strive to support our colleagues-in-the-humanities at universities and colleges spark constructive dialogue by bolstering their engaging humanities programming and increasing accessibility to diverse audiences both within and beyond the campus community for the greater good.
Florida colleges and universities are encouraged to apply for up to $5,000 to support community programming (either in-person or virtual) that aim to broaden the public’s awareness of the humanities and what it means to be human.
All Projects Must:
- Inspire constructive dialogue with the public.
- Involve humanities scholars and other subject-area experts.
- Be free and widely available to the public (even virtually).
- Actively engage a diverse audience, within and beyond the campus community.
