The Maryland Humanities Council was formed in 1974 in response to the federal law creating the National Endowment for the Humanities (P.L. 94-462). The Council is a private, nonprofit Maryland corporation funded by the federal government, foundations, corporations, and individuals, and by the Division of Historical and Cultural Programs, Department of Housing and Community Development.
The Council conducts programs and awards grants for projects to promote public understanding and appreciation of the humanities in Maryland. The humanities include history, languages, literature, jurisprudence, ethics, philosophy, archaeology, linguistics, comparative religion, cultural anthropology, and history and criticism of the arts.
The Governor appoints six of the Council's twenty-six volunteer members.
