Students, teachers, organizations and others are encouraged to apply for up to $1,000 to help them complete a project that will document, preserve or improve access to the history of the Juneau area.
The Juneau History Grant Committee looks for projects that have historical value to the greater Juneau community and that produce a tangible product that can be shared with the community.
Projects might include live performances, public presentations, research papers, recordings, videotapes or use of computers or other media.
The 1980 Juneau Centennial Committee set aside an endowment to help fund projects annually. Each year, up to $2,500 is available to be divided among successful applicants.
A committee will judge proposed projects on the following criteria:
Historical value to the community.
Can be accomplished within the stated timeline.
Realistic and balanced budget.
Accuracy and objectivity, as indicated by proposed sources and methodology.
Produce a tangible product to be shared with the community.
