South Carolina Humanities
Grants between $2,000 and $8,000 to South Carolina nonprofit organizations for public humanities projects that celebrate and examine the ways food defines the history and culture of the area. Eligible programs should highlight the food culture of the state and engage audiences in discussions about deeper food-related issues.
A wide variety of topics could be covered, including (but not limited to):
Food is an important and yet also a popular and accessible topic. SC Humanities will look favorably at proposals that use the humanities (history; literature; languages; linguistics; philosophy; ethics; comparative religion; anthropology; historical, critical and theoretical approaches to the arts) to think creatively about food in South Carolina and that encourage thoughtful dialogue and interaction among participants.
Priority will be given to proposals that address an important issue for South Carolina; utilize the perspectives of one or more humanities disciplines; and develop proper formats for implementation and distribution. Developing a collaborative base of support locally is also important.
For more information about the mission of South Carolina Humanities and the projects they support, see the SC Food for Thought Guidelines and Application document in Supporting Documents below.
