West Virginia Humanities Council (Charleston, WV 25301-3001)
Daniel S. Foster (Project Director: May 2016 to present)

State Humanities Program

To support local humanities initiatives and state humanities council operations.

The West Virginia Humanities Council promotes a vigorous program in the humanities statewide in West Virginia. We serve primarily through regrants and direct programs, which combine to produce over 400 public events each year. The regrants come largely from National Endowment for the Humanities funds, and include major grants and minigrants, media and publication grants, teacher institute grants and summer fellowships; NEH funds also provide general operating support. Our direct programs are those initiated and managed directly by Council staff and supported largely by state funds. e-WV, the online version of the West Virginia Encyclopedia, is currently our largest direct program, and we also operate a state folklorist project; a popular Chautauqua program; help to operate a state book festival; and broadcast state history bits twice daily on WV Public Radio, among other programs. We maintain a historic house as our headquarters and much-used program space.
