Maryland Humanities Major Grants
Letter of Intent deadline September 1 / Application deadline October 15
sponsored by Maryland Humanities

Our grants support public programming with the humanities at its heart — inspiring organizations to explore innovative programs that spark dialogue, strive to engage new audiences, and stimulate the thoughtful exchange of ideas.

Programs can take many forms, including lectures, new media projects, reading and discussion programs, seminars, interpretive exhibits, local and living histories, spoken word programs, and interpreting oral histories.

The humanities include the study and interpretation of history, literature (including novels, poetry, drama, and other forms of written expression, both modern and classical), philosophy, ethics, jurisprudence, comparative religion, archaeology, cultural anthropology, and the interpretation (not the creation) of the arts. These humanities disciplines are tools that can help us to explore what makes us human, connect us with others, and discover meaning and richness in our lives and for our communities.
