The National Endowment for the Humanities launched the We the People initiative in 2002 to increase Americans' understanding of their history and the world around them. As part of this initiative, Humanities Texas invites applications for projects that explore significant events and themes in our nation's history and culture and that advance knowledge of the principles that define America. Mini-grants of up to $1,500 are immediately available; proposals for major grants are invited for both the September 15, 2008, and March 15, 2009, grants cycles. Application forms and more information are available on the Humanities Texas website.
