It's Your Turn: Community Project Grants
Community Project Grants enable New Hampshire nonprofit organizations to design and carry out public humanities programs with the help of experts in philosophy, history, literature or other humanities disciplines relevant to their topic. From dynamic lectures and facilitated discussions, to walking tours, oral history workshops and teacher professional development seminars, these programs create opportunities for participants to explore new knowledge and discuss universal questions.
