Exploring Ethnicity, Diversity, and National and Local Identity

To support both grants and programs conducted by Humanities Iowa that focus on the circumstances and people that have contributed to cultural, economic, and civic progress in the United States, with particular emphasis on projects that examine cultural and ethnic diversity in Iowan life and in the formation of civic identity on the local, regional and national levels.

Humanities Iowa proposes to administer Council-conducted programs and to make re-grants to Iowan nonprofits. Applicants for WE THE PEOPLE funding will be encouraged to design programs and projects that capture both the heritage and contemporary concerns of Iowans, especially in rural areas. Of special interest are projects that explore how cultural and ethnic diversity informs and challenges our collective ideas of identity, particularly our identity as Americans.
