Planning Grants

Planning Grants provide funds to secure the assistance of humanities scholars or consultants to plan a project. Allowable expenses include consultants' stipends and reimbursements for travel, meals, and lodging. Planning Grants are accepted on a rolling deadline. Applicants are required to submit proposals for projects which begin no less than eight weeks after submission.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to high demand, funding for this program has been expended for the current fiscal year. The Council will begin accepting new grant applications for the January cycle. Please check back for exact due dates in the fall.
