We learn a lot at Grinnell. It’s what we do. Often, we learn in and through our classes. We read together. We talk together. We listen together. Some of our most important discoveries, however, happen outside of our courses. That’s what living in intellectual community is all about. The Center for the Humanities wants to support those discoveries.
The Humanities Exploration Fund provides small grants to groups of people who want to explore together, talk together, and listen together. You may use the funds to purchase books or any other materials that can help you draw on the arts and humanities to explore some part of the world around you. With the Humanities Exploration Fund, the important thing is that you get to decide when and how that happens.
Open to students, staff, and faculty. We hope you will consider submitting a proposal with friends this year.
