OCTC Humanities Enhancement Endowment Grant Application

Owensboro Community and Technical College (OCTC), National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) Mini-Grant Application

We are pleased to announce the annual OCTC Humanities Enhancement Endowment Grant. Those groups wishing to apply for funds from the grant will review the guidelines below and complete the application process.

Funding will be granted in any amount, up to $2500, and may be distributed in increments to more than one grantee.

The OCTC Humanities Enhancement Endowment Grant is made possible through an endowment initiated in 2011, seeded with an NEH Challenge Grant, and completed in 2017. The grant serves to promote and support the humanities at OCTC with programs such as the Common Reading program, the Global Studies program, as well as many others. The purpose of the grant is to support complementary programs throughout the college and OCTC service area.

Successful applicants will be provided a template for an End-of-Project Evaluation Form, and an Event Survey to collect participant feedback for the project.

Ideally, funding must be used within the indicated time frame (typically, the OCTC fiscal school year) to coincide with OCTC programming, but longer valuable projects related to literacy will also receive consideration.

Please see information about the current OCTC Common Reading selections for details on authors, books titles, and broader themes.

Also watch OCTC Common Reading's Facebook page for updates.

The OCTC Humanities Enhancement Endowment Grant Committees will review all applications received by the second week of the Fall and Spring semesters. Recipients will be apprised of available funding within approximately two weeks, pending committee approval.

Applications submitted by the deadline will be given priority consideration; applications submitted after the deadline will be given secondary consideration, dependent on the availability of funds.
