The Oklahoma Humanities Council (OHC) is an independent, nonprofit organization serving Oklahoma as the state partner of the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH). Our mission is to foster cultural opportunities that engage and inform citizens and enhance the quality of life for all Oklahomans. We believe that study of the humanities—disciplines such as history, literature, philosophy, art history, archeology, and ethics—helps people to acquire new perspectives. We strive to encourage the life of the mind through humanities education that inspires lifelong learning, encourages dialogue, and sparks imagination.

In addition to our own statewide programs, we are proud to lend support to other public humanities projects. OHC has a variety of grants available to help your community develop programming associated with Oklahoma Reads Oklahoma. From museum exhibits to scholar/discussion leaders, OHC has the resources to help you make your Oklahoma Reads Oklahoma experience an exciting, community-building event. Following is a list of OHC funding opportunites:
