Texas Holocaust and Genocide Commission

Grants & Contests

The Texas Holocaust, Genocide, and Antisemitism Advisory Commission participates in two educational granting programs. The first is the THGAAC Non-Profit Grant, which is offered to non-profit organizations for projects that relate to the THGAAC's mission to support Holocaust and genocide courses of study and awareness programs. The second is the THGAAC Holocaust Remembrance Week (HRW) Grant, which is also offered to non-profit organizations in order to provide local schools and communities with educational resources.

In addition, annually, the Friends of THGAAC generously facilitates the funding of the Dr. Anna Steinberger Outstanding Educator Award and directly funds the Friends of THGAAC Student Contests. The Dr. Steinberger Award is a $1,000 award that is presented to one Texas educator who demonstrates a record of excellence in teaching about the Holocaust and/or genocides to students (grades 6-12). The Friends of THGAAC Student Contests are open to middle and high school students (grades 6-12) and winners receive a monetary prize if selected as the top entry in the category of poetry or visual arts.

THGAAC HRW Grant

The intent of the THGAAC Holocaust Remembrance Week (HRW) Grant program is to advance public knowledge and the study of the Holocaust and other genocides by partnering with Texas-based, non-profit organizations to provide local schools and communities with educational resources.
