Indiana Humanities Council Awards Grant to “Every Woman has a Story”

June 26, 2008

INDIANAPOLIS—The Indiana Humanities Council (IHC) in partnership with the National Endowment for the Humanities announced Wednesday it has awarded a $2000 Humanities Initiative Grant to support “Every Woman has a Story: Journeys of Immigrant Women in Indiana.

The program will be headed by Dr. Dulce Maria Scott (pictured here), professor in the Sociology, Criminal Justice, and Family Science Department at Anderson University. Grant funds will be used to hire a student intern who is tasked with the transcribing and editing of the tales of various immigrant women.


The project will result in a monograph that will be useful to humanities scholars and other interested individuals and made available through the IHC’s Resource Connection— the IHC’s searchable catalog of educational materials: primary sources, images, videos, student activities, classroom assessments, and lesson plans.

The Indiana Humanities Council is a statewide non-profit dedicated to being a leader, key partner, and trusted voice in providing a humanities perspective for issues crucial to a changing Indiana. The IHC works in partnership with the National Endowment for the Humanities to offer two competitive grant programs, the Humanities Initiative Grants and Historic Preservation Grants. Grants are award to non-profits, schools and other institutions.

The Indiana Humanities Council awards both types of grants three times each year to organizations across Indiana. Since 2003 the IHC has awarded $9000 in Humanities Initiative Grants to organizations in Anderson. The IHC has also awarded two challenge grants of $15,000 to the Madison County Community Foundation, in 2000 and again in 2002.

The IHC website has a list of other 2008 grant recipients.

The final Indiana Humanities Council-Humanities Initiative grant deadline of 2008 is September 2. For additional information on grants and other IHC programs and activities, including the Resource Connection, visit their website, or contact Nancy Conner at 317.638.1500.
