The South Dakota Humanities Council is awarding $36,000 in grants to eight humanities-based organizations. The new programs funded by these grants are launching in the coming months.


Grants from the council are given out twice a year to fund new programs to expand education of the humanities in South Dakota. Applicants must be a non-profit and have the humanities as a central focus to its events or research.


Ann Volin is the Executive Director of the Humanities Council. She says it’s thrilling to see an increase in open discussion of the humanities.
