The Maryland Humanities Council 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. It is funded by the federal government, the Division of Historical and Cultural Programs of the Department of Housing and Community Development, and by foundations, corporations, and individuals.

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.
