Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA and territories nonprofit organizations, government agencies, tribes, and IHEs to provide week-long humanities workshops for K-12 educators. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take up to one month to complete. The purpose of this program is to enhance and strengthen humanities teaching at the K-12 level.

Projects employ a place-based approach to the study of humanities and are designed to offer educators a unique and compelling opportunity to deepen and expand their knowledge of the diverse histories, cultures, traditions, languages, and perspectives of the American people. Landmarks projects: (1) engage participants in a deep study of the relationship between place and central themes in American history and culture, including government, literature, the arts, architecture, archaeology, and related subjects; (2) explore how time and place can be investigated using scholarship and methodologies relevant to the study and practice of public humanities and experiential learning; and (3) provide participants with opportunities to examine and create materials for K-12 learning environments.

Landmarks workshops offer participants:

  • Enhanced knowledge of content through rigorous humanistic inquiry and pedagogical strategies relevant to the subject area and project theme
  • Essential source materials, including but not limited to primary texts, documents, oral histories, artifacts, and archival resources
  • Learning opportunities through a variety of media and modes of engagement including visits to museums, archives, or other sites; walking tours; and public performances
  • New ways to approach their K-12-level humanities curricula as well as state or subjectspecific standards, where applicable
  • A community of inquiry that encourages dialogue and the exchange of ideas
  • A team of humanities scholars, including faculty with significant K-12 experience, who contribute to all phases of the project
  • Opportunities to examine and design implementation strategies, curricular integration, and digital resources and tools for their respective learning environments
  • Projects targeted at one or more of the following grade levels: K-5, 6-8, and/or 9-12
