Humanities Centers Grant

The humanities allow us to explore the question: what does it mean to be human? Through the humanities, we can better understand and share our human experiences, values, and dreams. And these dreams might be best grasped by those who are uniquely situated to engage and inspire our communities, particularly our youth, in the humanities.

Humanities Centers, Institutes, Programs and humanities-related departments associated with Florida colleges and universities are encouraged to apply through this streamlined application for up to $3,000 to support community programming (either in-person or virtual) that seeks to broaden the public’s awareness of what it means to be human.
