Applications for Latino Americans: 500 Years of History

In February, ALA's Public Programs Office received a $1.5 million grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) to implement Latino Americans: 500 Years of History. The program is designed for libraries and a variety of other nonprofit organizations that seek to facilitate informed discussion in their communities about the long and fascinating history of Latinos in the United States. The project will feature the PBS documentary series LATINO AMERICANS, a production of WETA Washington, DC, as a public programming cornerstone.

Grants of $3,000 and $10,000 will be awarded to up to 200 eligible institutions around the country to support program series that explore key humanities themes presented in the LATINO AMERICANS documentary. Grantees will host scholar-led screening and discussion events that focus on at least two episodes of the six-part series, as well as other programs developed to engage local communities, such as oral history programming, local history exhibits, reading and discussion series, arts and humanities festivals, interpretive tours of historical and cultural sites, and live author and artist events. Online applications will be accepted through May 1.
