From HumanitiesDC

Some good opportunities here:
The deadline is one month away to submit your application for the Humanities Vision and Humanitini Curator grants:

The Humanities Vision Grant provides financial and capacity building resources to community organizations interested in creating innovative interpretations of humanities scholarship for public audiences. The grants are driven by the proposed final product; each grant will produce an educational resource that will be added to a publicly accessible, online archive. Deadline: March 13, 2020.

Learn more about the Humanities Vision Grant and how to apply by registering for one of our upcoming webinars .

The updated Humanitini Curator Grant provides opportunities for graduate students and others conducting and presenting original humanities research. Each Curator will create a public humanities program based on their research or area of expertise. The public programs will follow HumanitiesDC's successful Humanitini model that brings thoughtful humanities discussions to Washington, DC's happy-hour scene. Deadline: March 13, 2020.

But there's more!
