Grants

Delaware Humanities offers three kinds of grants:

Opportunity Grants

Opportunity Grants offer up to $3,000 for smaller projects or planning periods for larger projects. Applications can be submitted year-round, and while matching funds are required, matching can be waived in some circumstances.

Vision Grants

Vision Grants are available from $3,001 – $15,000 for major humanities projects. Matching funds are required.  The next deadline for Vision Grant drafts will be for the upcoming Spring 2019 cycle on April 2, 2019.  Drafts are required.

Full S.T.E.A.M. Ahead Grants

Full S.T.E.A.M. Ahead Grants can go up to $5,000. A component to DEstination: Space, these projects incorporate S.T.E.M. fields into humanities content. Matching funds are required. Applications can be submitted year-round.

While Delaware Humanities funds humanities projects which interpret or use art and performance to begin conversations, we do not fund projects focused on the creative and/or performing arts, and we do not offer grants to individuals. Delaware artists seeking grant information should visit the Delaware Division of the Arts.
