The IHC offers $1,000 grants to elementary and secondary teachers to enhance the way they teach the humanities in the classroom. Funds may be used to bring guest scholars to the classroom, to purchase curriculum materials, to attend special conferences, or for other innovative approaches to the teaching of the humanities. Teachers are encouraged to discuss their ideas with IHC staff prior to submitting grant applications. Grant awards are made directly to the teacher applicant, not necessarily to the school.
