Directory of Grants in the Humanities


Grants are supposed to enable work, not create more of it. You need a guide, a map, and the right tools for the job. Helping you from your earliest brainstorming sessions to fully funded projects, this essential directory offers countless tips and resources for artists and arts organizations seeking funding for performances, exhibits, residencies, general operations, fellowships, and numerous other program types. This invaluable directory highlights over 3,650 current programs from 2,106 sponsors, including U.S. and foreign foundations, corporations, state arts councils and government agencies, and other organizations. Each record includes:

  • Grant title
  • Description
  • Requirements
  • Amount
  • Application deadline
  • Contact information (phone, fax, and email)
  • Internet address (URL)
  • Sponsor name and address
  • Samples of awarded grants (when available)
  • Three indexes — subject, program type, and geographic — help you identify the right program quickly.

Unlike Grants in the Humanities (Neal-Schuman), which limits its focus to funding sources for scholars, this directory also provides information on sources for grant seekers outside of the academic environment. Each entry includes a description of the program, restrictions, requirements, grant amount, deadlines, contact address and telephone number, etc. The prefatory material clearly explains the use of the Directory and its three indexes: subject, sponsoring organization, and sponsoring organization by type. The text is attractive and well laid out. Recommended. Sybil Brigham McShane, Vermont Dept. of Libraries, Montpelier
