Billings Gazette

Humanities Montana recently awarded $42,367 to humanities projects across the state through their Opportunity Grants, Regular Grants and Research Fellowships.

The grant programs support projects that engage Montanans in meaningful discussion about the human condition, strengthen cooperative relationships among communities and cultural organizations, and enrich civic discourse among the state’s diverse cultures and geographic regions.

“We are honored to support a wide array of projects this winter. From First Voices’ ‘Fort Peck Stories’ to World Affairs Council of Montana’s ‘Connecting Montana to the World’ program for Montana youth and AERO’s Local Food Guide, these projects are creating a ripple effect of connection by engaging our state’s Indigenous, youth and rural audiences,” said Megan Hill Sundy, Humanities Montana grants manager. “Our next grant deadline is April 20. We encourage all interested applicants to reach out to discuss their projects with us.”
