Humanities Montana is an independent nonprofit organization that provides grants and programs on history, literature, Native American cultures, and more all over the state of Montana.
NOTICE: Humanities Montana has entered a year focused on expanding development capacity and planning for a relaunch of our grants and programs during 2020. We will therefore suspend our regular, film and digital, three-year sustaining, and fellowship grants for fiscal year 2019 (Nov 1, 2018-Oct 31, 2019).
We will continue to offer Opportunity Grants (quick-action grants up to $1,000) and will honor our already-approved three-year sustaining grants.
We recognize this suspension may cause inconvenience for our many partners and humanists around the state. Please call Humanities Montana’s staff at 406-243-6022 to discuss this temporary change and other possible funders for your work.
Humanities Montana recently awarded the Big Sky Film Institute a $4000 grant for their Native Filmmaker Initiative, a program designed to support the careers of Native filmmakers, to provide a platform for Native perspectives to be shared with diverse audiences, and to educate Montana youth about contemporary and historical indigenous issues through nonfiction film. The initiative provides career-building opportunities for underrepresented artists to pursue filmmaking as a vocation, and to proliferate Native perspectives by providing a platform for indigenous stories in theaters and schools.
