Inspiring a tolerant, literate, and intellectually inquisitive Idaho citizenry.

The Idaho Humanities Council (IHC) is a non-profit organization serving as a state-based partner of the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH). We are dedicated to serving Idaho citizens by promoting greater public awareness, appreciation, and understanding of the humanities.

Programs

Bringing the Humanities to You!

We work with organizations as partners to develop local humanities projects and programs, and by sponsoring our own Council-conducted programs, such as summer institutes in the humanities for K-12 teachers, library reading/discussion programs in small communities, traveling exhibitions from the Smithsonian Institution, a Humanities Speakers Bureau, and Distinguished Humanities Lectures.

Grants

Need funding for a humanities project?

We offer grants to support projects involving Idaho citizens that focus on literature, history, philosophy, art history, archaeology and other humanities disciplines.
