Funded by federal, state, and private sources, the Arkansas Humanities Council is a private 501 © 3 founded in 1974. Through grant making, public programs, and education, the Arkansas Humanities Council works with humanities scholars, nonprofit organizations, museums and schools to promote the humanities statewide.

The purpose of the Arkansas Humanities Council is to promote understanding, appreciation, and use of the humanities in Arkansas. To achieve its purpose, the council awards grants through a competitive application process to nonprofit groups and organizations so they can plan, conduct, and evaluate projects in the humanities for Arkansas citizens.

Grants are awarded by the council to academic presses for costs associated with the publication of scholarly books on topics in Arkansas prehistory, history, and culture.  The council expects that books supported through this category will be of interest to audiences outside the academic community as well as within it.
