About Project Grants

Project Grants can be used to digitize archival content or curate already-digital assets. Grant funded projects should address the full lifecycle of digitization, including imaging, content description (metadata creation) and digital asset delivery.

New! These grants are funded for up to $70,000 and for up to two years of work.

Projects should be well organized before digitization begins. If you require substantial time to evaluate and survey the archival material, you should consider applying for a planning grant.
