Community Discussion Grants Program through NJCH

New Jersey Council for the Humanities invites you to apply to its Community Discussion Grants Program.

Does your organization want to host a book discussion group? Are you planning a new film discussion program? Whether your organization has been working in the public humanities for years or is planning a project for the first time, the New Jersey Council for the Humanities invites you to apply to participate in its Community Discussion Grants Program.

With awards of up to $500, a simple application process, and only weeks to award notification, NJCH’s Community Discussion Grants help nonprofit and public organizations create small-scale humanities programs that have a big impact on their communities.

Projects will use the humanities to foster community discussion around a big idea. A big idea raises basic questions of meaning and value and invites discussion and debate. A big idea is better understood through dialogue and exposure to other points of view.

Usually, NJCH awards grants to historical and cultural organizations, such as local historical societies and public libraries, but any nonprofit or public organization that is interested in exploring big ideas in their community through the humanities paradigm is encouraged to apply in this grant program.

There is no application deadline (they will take applicants until the funds are depleted), so apply today!
