Georgia Humanities grants fund humanities-based cultural and educational programs in local communities.
Grants are awarded to nonprofit organizations such as museums, libraries, historical societies, community and downtown organizations, educational institutions, and civic and government agencies. Grants are not awarded to individuals.
Examples of recent Georgia Humanities grant programs include: author events, film and community reading series, historical walking tours, traveling exhibitions, community discussions, oral history and genealogy projects, placement of new historic markers, and children's workshops.
Georgia Humanities does not fund the performing arts, the publication of books, the restoration of buildings, food, beverages or awards, or any programs that advocate topics of a religious, social or political nature.
Programs should be offered free of charge, open to the entire community, and include the participation of at least one humanities scholar.
Impact of the Grant Program

Collaborating with Georgia Humanities creates new possibilities in communities for humanities education that result in new knowledge and pride of place.
