The Idaho Humanities Council invites proposals for Mini and Major grants, Teacher Incentive Grants, and Research Fellowships from organizations and individuals for consideration at the Councilís fall grant round. The deadline for grant proposals is September 15, 2018. Prospective applicants are strongly encouraged to contact IHC staff in advance of the deadline to discuss their project ideas before drafting a proposal. Proposal drafts are due by August 15.
Teacher Incentive Grants are limited to $1,000, and are awarded to K-12 teachers to enhance the way they teach the humanities in the classroom.
Research Fellowships are special awards to scholars to support research in any field of the humanities. They are for up to $3,500, awarded only once a year, and may be used to support expenses related to research, including travel to special archives, lodging, and related expenses. They are competitive and IHC awards up to four Research Fellowships each fall.
Mini grants (under $2,000) and Major Grants over the years have supported museum and library exhibits, oral history projects, and more.
