Grants

Funding cultural programs around the state is one way Ohio Humanities helps spark conversations and inspire ideas. We award grants that support storytellers statewide, from museums to journalists to documentary filmmakers and more!

Please note that Ohio Humanities is making changes to the grants program for 2023. New guidelines and deadlines will be released later this summer that will go into effect on January 1, 2023. Please contact a program officer if you have questions about applying in 2023 and beyond.
