Educator Enrichment Grants follow the general Ohio Humanities funding principals but also have special guidelines of their own. When applying for an Educator Enrichment Grant make sure to thoroughly review both of the following:

  1. The Grant Guidelines page will explain Ohio Humanities general funding guidelines.
  2. Because media projects differ significantly from other grant applications, Media Grants have specific requirements of their own. The Educator Enrichment Grant Guidelines page explains these differences and how to create a proper budget and project narrative to create a competitive proposal.

Once you have reviewed all the information, use the button below to apply. We have also supplied a sample application to use as an example as you complete the application process.
