Soul of the City Grant deadline

Last Date:

The Humanities Council will offer three grants for youth-serving (approx. ages 14-19) humanities programs based on our successful Soul of the City program. For almost a decade, Soul of the City has encouraged young Washingtonians to use the humanities disciplines to strengthen their leadership skills, and to view their city, their country, and their world in exciting and enriching new ways. We will award $10,000 to each successful applicant. In addition to the Humanities Council’s standard grant requirements and qualifications, applicants will be expected to address each of the core concepts of the Soul of the City program including:
1. Use humanities ideas, disciplines and concepts to help youth understand themselves and the human experience.
2. Provide real-world knowledge and skills to encourage youth to improve themselves and the world in which they live.
3. Demonstrate that participants will leave the program as confident, service-oriented leaders with increased communications and critical thinking skills.
Funding for these grants is provided by the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities.
