SEFLIN: Grant Writing for Digitization and Preservation Projects

This six-hour workshop focuses on preparing for and writing grants, especially for digitization and/or preservation projects. Since most digitization and preservation grants are funded through the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) and the National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC), this session is based upon those particular granting entities’ requirements. Developing proposals for state, local and foundation funding sources will also be addressed.
The workshop includes matching your institution’s project with the appropriate funding agency and preparing to write a proposal. The majority of the class is spent covering the elements of a grant proposal and developing those elements. Discussion of the grant review process and a grant review exercise will also be covered.
