Monthly Grants

Up to $2,000

Ohio Humanities considers small grant requests on a monthly basis. Drafts submitted online are recommended but not required.

Deadline: The first business day of each month 

Monthly Grants follow the general Ohio Humanities guidelines, so make sure to thoroughly review the Grant Guidelines page before you begin your application as the guidelines presented are essential to completing a competitive proposal. Once you have reviewed all the information, use the button below to apply. We have also supplied two sample applications to use as examples as you complete the application process.
