State Humanities Program

To support local humanities initiatives and state humanities council operations.

NJCH’s mission is to harnesses the power of the humanities to strengthen our pluralistic society. We accomplish this work by providing and seeding public programs that use the humanities to deepen our understanding of ourselves and our world. One of our most popular programs is the Horizons Speakers Bureau, a cost effective and accessible service that provides 200 high quality humanities lectures to nonprofit organizations each year. NJCH also partners with the Smithsonian’s Museum on Main Street traveling exhibition program and facilitates Literature & Medicine, a national, award-winning humanities reading and discussion program for healthcare professionals. In keeping with our philosophy of working in partnership with other organizations, we award approximately $200,000 in grants through a competitive proposal review process. We have also begun a new community engagement initiative to support underserved audiences in targeted municipalities.
