Grant Opportunities from the Oregon Council for the Humanities


Nonprofit organizations across Oregon may now apply for two types of grants from the Oregon Council for the Humanities (OCH): Public Program Grants between $1,000 and $5,000 and Opportunity Grants up to $1,000.

OCH funds programs that offer opportunities for civic engagement and humanities learning, respond to timely issues and ideas in communities across Oregon, and provide a broad context for public dialogue. Special consideration will be given to projects that explore the following themes:

* Globalism (including but not limited to economics, war, security, labor, migration, immigration, or foreign policy) * Media and Consumer Culture (including but not limited to media literacy, consumerism, advertising, socioeconomics, technology, ethics, or privacy) * Place and Community (including but not limited to public space, property rights, sustainability, localism, land use, urban and rural issues, or the built environment)

Public Program Grants are awarded once a year. Letters of intent to apply for Public Program Grants must be postmarked by November 3, 2008. Opportunity Grants are awarded year-round. Applications for Opportunity Grants are reviewed on a monthly basis and are accepted from November 1, 2008, to October 31, 2009.

Grant guidelines are available for download on the OCH website (www.oregonhum.org ) or by request from Development and Program Coordinator Annie Dubinsky at (503) 241-0543.
