Grants of up to $2,000 to Rhode Island nonprofit organizations, schools, and researchers for a broad range of humanities projects. Requests will be considered for public humanities projects, individual humanities research, civic education projects for K-12 students, and the research phase of documentary films. Projects should connect the public with the humanities, at no cost, and be accessible. Programs should be geared toward a broad and diverse general audience, and must allow for differing points of view.
Funding will be provided for the following four types of proposals:
Rhode Island Council for the Humanities supports public humanities projects that enrich and enliven the life of the state through a variety of formats including: community conversations, talks and lectures, new media technology, museum interpretations and exhibitions, workshops, panel discussions, book or film discussions, oral histories, and radio shows.
Rhode Island Council for the Humanities supports documentary films that preserve Rhode Island’s stories and bring its history to life. The Council follows a three-phase approach to funding documentary films:
It is only on a rare occasion that the Council funds finishing or post-production for a film for which the Council has not funded its development.
K-12 Civic Education:
Democracy Demands Wisdom: K-12 Civic Education Grants support projects that enhance the humanities components of K-12 education through the creative integration of the Rhode Island Social Studies Grade Span Expectations in teaching and learning, in order to cultivate the civic leaders of future generations.
Rhode Island Council for the Humanities supports original research that uncovers Rhode Island’s untold stories and sheds new light and insight on established stories. The Council supports new scholarship by awarding mini grants to independent researchers to conduct research and share their findings with the public.
Beginning April 22, 2020 the Council will accept applications for general operating support grants and project grants in response to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic.
