Educator Enrichment Grants

Up to $20,000

Ohio Humanities supports educator enrichment grant proposals throughout the year. Educator enrichment grants are designed to enhance teachers’ understanding and appreciation of the humanities. Projects should provide a rich humanities experience that enhances success in the K-12 classroom. Educator enrichment projects provide opportunities to build partnerships and leverage external funding. Therefore, applicants are expected to seek additional project support from local foundations and other sources.

Applicants for grants over $2,000 should plan to submit a full draft online before the deadline.
