About Us

The Puerto Rican Endowment for the Humanities (FPH for its acronym in Spanish) is an independent, non-profit organization affiliated with the National Endowment for the Humanities and dedicated to promoting the values of the humanities through its own initiatives. It also, promotes finances and supports deserving, high-quality proposals from individuals, communities and non-profit entities. The organization’s own initiatives, as well as the proposals, are aimed at developing programs and activities that stimulate analysis and dissemination of knowledge about the Puerto Rican experience and reality.


The FPH perceives the humanities as the diverse forms of human labor, both practical and intellectual, that give us freedom and dignity. In its particular case, the FPH gives priority to humanities knowledge in certain fields in the measure that they reflect the diversity of the Puerto Rican experience, heritage, traditions and history. The FPH also perceives the humanities as a learning process that is relevant to all phases of human life, from the formative stages to productive maturity and advanced age (the concept of “life-long humanities”).
