The NDHC 's grant program provides support for public humanities programs that promote the council's mission and vision.
Any nonprofit organization may apply, including schools, churches, community service groups, museums, historical societies, libraries, colleges, governmental or tribal entities, and ad hoc groups formed for the purpose of a specific project.
The NDHC currently offers two types of grants, General Grants and Dakota Discussions Grants
General Grants support direct program costs of humanities projects that bring historical, cultural or ethical perspectives to bear on topics and issues of interest to our communities. These may take many different forms, but they have the following characteristics in common. They: engage participants in thinking critically about fundamental questions of value, purpose, and meaning; promote better understanding of ourselves and others, past and present; are conducted in a spirit of open and informed inquiry, providing multiple viewpoints, where applicable; involve partnerships between community organizations, cultural institutions, and scholars in the humanities.
General Grants are available in four sizes:
Quick Grants ($500 and Below)
Small Grants ($501 to $3,000)
Large Grants ($3,001 to $10,000)
Partnership Grants (Amount Determined by NDHC Staff and Board)
Dakota Discussion Grants
NDHC Dakota Discussions Grants support program costs of humanities-based book and/or film discussion projects. Grant awards are based on the quality of books and/or films selected and their ability to fulfill the NDHC’s mission and vision. The goal of the Dakota Discussions program is to create spaces that encourage the exchange of ideas.
Dakota Discussions Grants ($2,000 and Below)
