Humanities and the Legacy of Race and Ethnicity in Wisconsin

Recent events have raised a national call for a more consequential public discussion of the persistent social, economic, cultural, and racial issues that divide our communities. As part of that conversation, the Wisconsin Humanities Council has issued a Request for Proposals.

We are looking for projects that engage in, or foster, meaningful community conversations about issues of race and ethnicity.

Applicants should use the regular WHC grant application forms and follow the application deadlines and guidance for our regular Major Grant and Mini Grant cycles. Read more about this Request for Proposals and our grant program and be in touch if you have an idea for a project.

Please Note: Awarded grants must be expended by August 29, 2017.
