LEH hosting two free grants information sessions

Interested in applying for a grant?

The Louisiana Endowment for the Humanities (LEH) is holding two free grants info sessions for individuals and nonprofit organizations interested in applying for either a Rebirth Grant or a Rebirth PL Grant. Rebirth PL grants are for public libraries only.

The LEH, the state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities, offers grants for public humanities programs, documentary photography and radio projects, digital humanities projects, assistance with publication projects, new and continuing scholarly research about Louisiana, and humanities-based educational initiatives.

*Due to the current public health crisis, project proposals that think creatively about how to sustain humanities programming in new ways are particularly welcome.

LEH Grants Info Session: Rebirth and Rebirth PL Grants – July 13 | 10:00 a.m.
LEH Grants Info Session: Rebirth and Rebirth PL Grants – August 5 | 10:00 a.m.
