Grants to Arkansas nonprofit organizations and academic presses to plan, conduct, and evaluate programs in the humanities disciplines that enrich the lives of state residents. Funding may be requested for public programming, research, publications, and media projects. Humanities scholars must be involved in planning, implementing, and evaluating projects funded by the council.
Major Grant Categories:
Public Programs: Public programs involve interaction between humanities scholars and Arkansas audiences. Formats for public programs include, but are not limited to, lectures, discussion programs, workshops, conferences, guided tours, film series and discussions, or any other imaginative means of bringing together humanities scholars and specific Arkansas audiences to examine and discuss ideas, texts, or objects from the perspective of the humanities.
Research: The council awards grants to nonprofit organizations for individual or collaborative research on topics in Arkansas prehistory, history, and culture to nonprofit organizations and groups. The council does not award grants to individuals. The results of research must be of interest or value to audiences outside the academic community as well as within it.
Publications: Grants are awarded by the Council to academic presses for costs associated with the publication of scholarly books on topics in Arkansas prehistory, history, and culture. The council expects that books supported through this category will be of interest to audiences outside the academic community as well as within it. Preference will be given to presses that make publication decisions based on refereed peer reviews.
Media Projects: Projects that focus on Arkansas, prehistory, history, and culture and involve collaboration between humanities scholars and experienced media specialists are eligible for grants from the council.
