Take Survey

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.

For example, while there might be two open applications from a university, they must not be from the same department (i.e. Department of History).

Eligible programs may include, but are in no means limited to town halls, reading and discussion groups, exhibits (in-person and virtual) with public programing, community conversations, lecture and speaker series, or other engaging public humanities programming.

Eligible applicant organizations must note:

  • A Federal-ID number is required to apply.
  • (NEW!) Have a Unique Entity ID (SAM)to apply. Click Here for a Quick Start Guide to obtain a SAM.
    • Upon award, the grantee must fully register on govin order to receive grant funding. Registering in SAM.gov is FREE, and to seek help is free. Download this Quick Start Guide for registering or renewing with SAM.gov.
  • Not have another Florida Humanities Greater Good: Humanities in Academia open. Organizations must close out their current grant award prior to submitting another proposal.
