Georgia Humanities Council grants fund humanities-based cultural and educational programs in local communities.
Grants are awarded to nonprofit organizations such as museums, libraries, historical societies, community groups, educational institutions, civic and government agencies.
Examples of recent GHC 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. GHC 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.2015 Grants
