Media Grants

Media grant applications are sent to external reviewers with professional expertise in media projects. These reviews are then forwarded to the Council’s Program Committee for consideration.  Media reviewers evaluate the following:


  • media production sample
  • script, film treatment (or comparable detailed statement)
  • expertise of media personnel
  • product budget
  • promotional plans and media support
  • production schedule
  • content (creativity, originality)
  • likelihood that the applicant will complete the entire project


As with other Council grants, media grants must include the involvement of a humanities scholar (Section 8).  They must also include media experts (Section 6-C).
