OKLAHOMA CITY - Oklahoma Humanities (OH) is now accepting applications from Oklahoma nonprofits wishing to apply for a Major Grant award of up to $8,500 or a Challenge Grant award of up to $15,000.

Oklahoma Humanities grants encourage cultural programming on the local level across the state. Eligible projects must support OH's mission to strengthen communities by helping Oklahomans learn about the human experience, understand new perspectives, and participate knowledgeably in civic life. OH grants can fund a variety of humanities-based projects, including exhibits, lectures, panel discussions, websites, film festivals, and more.

"Oklahoma Humanities funds eligible projects that bridge the academic disciplines like history, literature, and philosophy to the general public," said Ann Thompson, Executive Director. "Grant applicants from communities all over the state can receive funding for projects with diverse, thought-provoking ideas about the human story.”

Mandatory draft applications must be submitted no later than August 1 via the council's online grant system. Final applications will be submitted no later than September 1. Applicants must allow at least 90 days between the final application deadline and the starting date of the proposed project.
