Indiana Humanities is pleased to offer a fellowship of $2,500 to support new humanities research that explores anti-Black racial injustice and structural racism in Indiana and how Black Hoosiers have responded.  

The fellowship, named in honor of archivist and historian Wilma Gibbs Moore, is open to individual researchers and research teams who can demonstrate their credibility as researchers and show how their proposed topic aligns to our goals. Scholars do not need to be based in Indiana, but research topics must significantly relate to Indiana.

Proposals from across the fields of humanities are welcome, including but not limited to history, literature, philosophy, cultural studies, religious studies, art history, folklore, ethnomusicology and gender studies, as well as humanistic social sciences such as political science, sociology, and anthropology.

Proposals for the Wilma Gibbs Moore Fellowships are due by September 28, 2020.  

Additionally, Indiana Humanities offers INcommon Grants, which provide tax-exempt organizations with up to $5,000 to develop and implement creative and thoughtful public programs that use humanities ideas, readings and scholars to spark in-depth thinking and conversation around the persistent social, economic, cultural and racial issues that divide our communities. Our next round of applications is due on Sept. 30, 2020. You can learn more at Indiana Humanities’ grants page and view the grant guidelines here
