Public Scholars

Public Scholars is the newest Council program. It promotes vibrant public humanities engagement across New York State by offering a selection of dynamic, compelling presentations facilitated by humanities scholars. The Public Scholars program replaces the Council’s Speakers in the Humanities program, and both expands upon and deepens the premise of that longstanding program.

Any tax-exempt organization in New York State is eligible to apply.
