Soul of the City Grant – Up to $10,000 – Preliminary Applications Due First Friday in February; Final Applications Due First Friday in March
This youth program grant is awarded to organizations providing humanities programs for youth ages 14-19 in the District of Columbia, based on the Humanities Council’s successful Soul of the City (SOTC) Program. HCWDC has presented SOTC for almost a decade to hundreds of young people. It emphasizes one of the Council’s core beliefs that effective leadership can be cultivated through a curriculum that combines humanities concepts with skill building. SOTC encourages young people to view their city, their country and their world in new ways and prepares them for leadership. Each grant is guided by a prospectus ensuring that all programs:
- Use humanities ideas, disciplines and concepts to help youth understand themselves and the human experience.
- Provide tools to encourage youth to improve themselves and the world in which they live.
- Produce confident, service-oriented leaders with increased communications and critical thinking skills.
Funding for these grants is provided by the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities.
