December 20 Grant Deadline for Regular, Three-Year Sustaining, and Research Grants

November 22, 2021

MISSOULA – Humanities Montana’s deadline for regular and three-year sustaining grants, as well as research fellowships, is December 20th. Opportunity grants will continue to be provided with a rolling submission deadline.

Regular grants provide support for requests of over $1,000. Types of projects supported include: book festivals, conferences, exhibits, lectures, media projects, museum assistance, oral histories, panel discussions, planning for humanities programs, public debates, reading and discussion programs, workshops, podcasts, and other innovative ideas.

Research fellowships provide a maximum award of up to $4,000. Humanities Montana awards research fellowships to a broad range of scholars, not all affiliated with a university. All proposals must include a public program component.

Three-year sustaining grants are awarded for projects that require long-term funding. Applicants who have received funding from Humanities Montana in the past may inquire about applying for a three-year sustaining grant for the same project. The number of such grants awarded is extremely limited. Applicants must talk to Humanities Montana staff before applying.

Please contact Kim Anderson, director of programs and grants at or call (406) 243-6022 with questions about projects and eligibility.

Humanities Montana is Montana’s state humanities council with a mission to serve communities through stories and conversation. We offer experiences that nurture imagination and ideas by speaking to Montanans’ diverse history, literature, and philosophy. Established in 1972, we are one of fifty-six councils across the nation that the National Endowment for the Humanities created in order to better infuse the humanities directly and effectively into public life. We produce, fund, create, and support humanities-based projects and programs, eye-opening cultural experiences, and meaningful conversations.
