Delaware Humanities (DH)
Grants ranging from $3,000 to $15,000 to Delaware nonprofit organizations, schools, IHEs, government agencies, and groups to support major humanities projects. Applicants must submit a draft proposal prior to applying. Possible projects include, but are not limited to, conferences, book festivals, exhibits, lectures, media projects, museum assistance, oral history, panel discussions, planning for humanities programs, public debates, reading and discussion programs, and workshops.
Delaware Humanities grant projects bring Delawareans together by offering cultural programs in institutions of all kinds: museums, libraries, schools and colleges, senior centers and veterans hospitals, churches, social service agencies, and businesses. Designed to encourage conversations and connections, these programs offer Delaware communities insights into the way we think, the things we value, and the world we live in – in short, what it means to be human.

Humanities programs focus on the interpretive aspects of the arts: historical or philosophical contexts, analyses of methodology, or approaches to art movements or periods. Delaware Humanities will offer grants for programs that combine performance with interpretation, such as a scholarly discussion following the production of a play.
All Delaware Humanities-funded projects must have:
