2016 - 17 Special Initiative: Pulitzer Prize Centennial
In 2016, the North Dakota Humanities Council (NDHC) will celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Pulitzer Prize Foundation. In addition to council run programming, we are inviting community partners and nonprofits to submit grant applications to the NDHC for projects highlighting Pulitzer Prize winners. All projects seeking funding should deepen and inspire the public’s engagement with and understanding of the value of great literature, history, music, drama, and journalism. The NDHC is seeking projects that fulfill one or more of the following criteria: 1. inspire new generations to be interested in pursuing letters or journalism 2. broaden audiences for high-caliber writing or journalism such as that exemplified by Pulitzer winners 3. use Pulitzer Prize-winning materials and writers in imaginative ways 4. foster news literacy (“Why News Matters,” a grant making program of the Robert R. McCormick Foundation, defines news literacy as the ability to use critical thinking skills to judge the reliability and credibility of news reports and information sources.)
We welcome applications for book discussions, talks, communiversity courses, plays, musical interpretations, author readings, classroom visits, school programs, and more. Grants taking part in this special initiative will receive funding preference from the NDHC in 2016.
