New Hampshire Humanities Grants
New Hampshire Humanities grants provide funds to support humanities organizations and public programs across New Hampshire. The public humanities bring the insights and knowledge of humanities disciplines – history, literature, philosophy, ethics, archeology, anthropology, linguistics, geography, the law or legal theory, classics, and cultural or religious studies – to bear on public life. These programs offer New Hampshire residents the opportunity to interpret, question, and debate new ideas while learning about the world in which we live. Through such programs, the public humanities strengthen civic discourse and foster an informed citizenry, and therefore, fundamentally support both our local communities and national democracy.
