The hour-long workshops are free and open to anyone interested in learning more about applying for project grant funding from Nevada Humanities.

Nevada Humanities offers grants of up to $5,000 to nonprofit organizations and government entities, such as libraries and schools, to fund public programs and educational programs in the humanities. Mini-grant requests of up to $1,000 may be submitted at any time. Information about Nevada Humanities and its grant program can be found online.

Nevada Humanities is especially interested in funding projects that promote community through various forms of engagement and projects that encourage conversation. This may be through face-to-face dialogue, such as lectures, forums, and round-table discussions, but also through programs that stimulate thought and reflection, such as media productions, film screenings, exhibitions, local history projects, and projects that explore local culture and Nevada's diverse heritage and unique places.

NB!: Next deadline for proposals: March 10
