New Hampshire Humanities Focus Grants provide grant funds to support public humanities programs on a selected theme or area of focus.
The inaugural Focus Grant, developed in conjunction with United States Poet Laureate Joy Harjo’s May 2021 virtual visit to New Hampshire Humanities, will provide up to $1,000 to fund public humanities programs focused on indigenous studies, poetry, or literature.
We welcome applications from both non-profit organizations or individual scholars that propose creative and engaging public humanities programs exploring a topic within the following fields: indigenous studies, poetry, or literature. We particularly encourage proposals for programs that will focus on indigenous stories; incorporate analytical perspectives of race, class, or gender; explore questions surrounding identity; highlight transnational literature; or engage with the digital humanities.
Applicants may request up to $1,000 in grant funds; there is no matching funds requirement for this grant. All applications are due by June 10, 2021. All grant-supported events must take place between July 1 - October 15, 2021.
