Humanities Texas invites proposals for our 2020 Linden Heck Howell Texas History Grant. This grant of up to $10,000 is made once every two years to Texas educational and cultural organizations to support the development of K–12 instructional materials focusing on Texas history. Projects that address a recognized curricular need at the primary or secondary level are especially encouraged.

The application deadline for Howell grants is September 15, 2020. Projects may begin no earlier than December 1, 2020.

This opportunity is made possible by the Linden Heck Howell Memorial Fund. The fund was established in memory of Linden Heck Howell, former member and chair of our board of directors, as a lasting tribute to her service to the organization and her commitment to the study of Texas history. Howell served on the board from 1996 to 1999, during which time she made significant contributions to the vitality of Humanities Texas as well as the national Federation of State Humanities Councils. Her commitment to the humanities inspired family, friends, and colleagues alike.
