Thirty-four awards include 14 major grants for public humanities programs, one planning grant, 12 opportunity grants, six teacher incentive grants, and one other funded program. The grants were supported in part by funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities and the Idaho Humanities Council’s Endowment for Humanities Education.

In Bonner County, a major grant was awarded to the Music Conservatory of Sandpoint was awarded $2,000 to help support a summer student exchange program that promotes cultural appreciation and understanding through music. The El Sistema program includes regular classes during the school year, followed by the summer exchange.
