Welcome to the Alaska Humanities Forum Grant Program!
To use the wisdom and methods of the humanities to promote the civic, intellectual and cultural life of all Alaskans.
The AKHF grant program funds humanities-based projects. In carrying out the Forum’s mission, we support grant projects that:
- Cultivate appreciation and enjoyment of the humanities, including disciplines such as Cultural studies, Archaeology, Ethics, Philosophy, History, Linguistics, Folklore, Languages, and many more.
- Create dialogue among peoples holding divergent points of view.
- Apply traditional bodies of wisdom to present concerns.
- Search for a sense of personal identity and a sense of place through history, traditions, and new ideas.
- Pass on the values, methods, and wisdom of the humanities to future generations of Alaskans.

- General Grants: Funding up to $10,000 for general humanities projects. Deadline is October 1 annually.
- Mini Grants: Our smallest grant program with funding up to $2000. These projects have a rolling deadline and need prior approval before applying.
