NMHC Grant Program

The New Mexico Humanities Council accepts applications for funding to conduct high quality humanities programs for public audiences throughout the state. Programs are intended primarily for adults who are not full-time students and for families. They are programs widely advertised and held at times and in locations accessible to the general public. The programs may vary as widely as New Mexico's communities and audiences. These programs bring humanities scholars and the public together. They create a dialogue that enhances the civic and cultural life of the citizens of New Mexico.

Types of Grants

Direct Grants are an outright award of NMHC funds. Like all grants, the grant must be matched, which means that other sources must meet at least half of the project's total costs. For a Direct Grant this requirement can be satisfied entirely with in-kind contributions, such as donated facilities, services and time. Direct Grants may also be matched with a sponsor's cash.

There are two types of Direct Grant awards:

Regular Grants: over $2,000

Mini Grants: NMHC is evaluating the mini-grant program and will not be accepting mini-grant applications this year.  Please follow the Regular Grant deadlines to seek support and apply for your public humanities programming.  Stay tuned for further developments in our grant program.

What are public humanities programs?

Public: They are intended primarily for adults who are not full-time students and for families. They are programs widely advertised and held at times and in locations accessible to the general public.

Humanities: The act that established the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) says, "The term 'humanities' includes, but is not limited to, the study of the following: language, both modern and classical; linguistics; literature; history; jurisprudence; philosophy; archaeology; comparative religion; ethics; the history, criticism, and theory of the arts; those aspects of social science which have humanistic methods; and the study and application of the humanities to the human environment with particular attention to reflecting on our diverse heritage, traditions, and history and to the reliance of the humanities to the current conditions of national life." NMHC will also fund projects that deal with the historical human values aspects of science and technology.

Programs: They may vary as widely as New Mexico's communities and audiences. These programs bring scholars and the public together in a dialogue that enhances the civic and cultural life of the citizens of the state.
