New For the 2022-2023 Cycle: 

  • Landmarks now offers two grant program options: One for K-12 educators and one for higher education faculty and humanities professionals.
  • Previously awarded projects are no longer required to change the focus of their program to apply again.

The Landmarks of American History and Culture program supports a series of one-week residential, virtual, and combined format workshops across the nation that enhance and strengthen how K-12 educators, higher education faculty, and humanities professionals study sites, areas, or regions of historic and cultural significance and incorporate place-based teaching and learning in the humanities.
