Maryland Humanities Awards $4,000 in Grants to Four Maryland Nonprofits

July 29, 2020

(Baltimore) – Maryland Humanities is pleased to award $4,000 in mini grant funding to four Maryland organizations: Coppin State University Development Foundation, Forest Woods Media Productions, Prince George’s Community College Foundation, and Urban Rural Action. The grantees are located in Baltimore City, Anne Arundel County, Prince George’s County, and Washington County, respectively. Funded projects include a public radio show featuring Maryland poets, virtual classes about Black women’s journey for voting rights, and more.

Mini grants provide support of up to $1,200 per recipient. Nonprofit organizations that use the humanities—literature, philosophy, history, and other disciplines—to inspire Marylanders to embrace lifelong learning, exchange ideas openly, and enrich their communities are eligible to apply. Grant criteria encourage free public programming in many forms. The next mini grant round application deadline is November 1, 2020.

Maryland Humanities also provides major grants with support of up to $10,000 per recipient. Letters of Intent are required of all major grant applicants, and the next LOI deadline is September 1, 2020.

Maryland Humanities’ Grants Program is funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Maryland Historical Trust in the Maryland Department of Planning, and the Maryland Department of Labor.
