Humanities Texas grants support a wide range of public programs throughout the state: lectures, panel discussions, and conferences; teacher institutes; reading- and film-discussion groups; interpretive exhibitions; television and radio programming; film production; and interactive multimedia programming. All funded programs are firmly grounded in the humanities and are directed to the general public.
Humanities Texas grants are made possible with funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
