Applications for the 2012/2013 Juneau History Grant are available from the Juneau-Douglas City Museum.
Established in 1980 by the Juneau Centennial Committee, the Juneau History Grant, now managed by the city museum, provides up to $1,000 for projects that research, document, preserve, or improve access to the history of the Juneau area. Projects might consist of performances, public presentations, a research paper, bibliography, model, booklet, photographs, recordings and so forth. Individuals, organizations and school groups passionate about Juneau history are encouraged to apply. Proposals on all Juneau area topics are welcome.
“The History Grant program was established to encourage amateur researchers to move on to the next steps - distributing their information to the community, archiving and protecting their material, and giving them some public recognition for their efforts,” says former grant recipient and current Committee member Mike Blackwell.
