Illinois Humanities Multiplier Grant

Work in Humanities
Friday, September 15, 2017

Illinois Humanities works to build dialogue across all sectors of society to examine issues important to democracy in the focus areas of public policy, media & journalism, business, and art. Using the humanities as tools to stimulate discussion, we create experiences across Illinois through programming, events, and grantmaking to engage a diverse public on ideas and issues that matter.

Multiplier Grants are our largest grant category (maximum $15,000). They are meant to support collaborative projects in the public humanities.

Examples of Multiplier Grants might include a number of groups coming together in a given city or town to form a working group trying to attract young families, the development of a citywide plan for nurturing the humanities, or a group of libraries or historical societies working collectively to bolster their public engagement in creative ways.

Deadlines: January 15th, May 15th, and September 15th
