Grant News You Can Use

The summer deadline for Major Humanities* and Heritage grants is May 28th. No time to pull together a grant application? No problem. There is plenty of time to prepare a grant application before the fall deadline on September 24, 2014. Plus, KHC is partnering with the Kansas Historical Society to offer grant workshops in Hays and Topeka this summer. Each workshop provides valuable information about the KHC grant application process and will help you refine your ideas. There are two dates and locations to choose from:

June 23, 2014
1-5 PM
Hays Public Library, Hays

July 8, 2014
1-5 PM
Kansas Historical Society, Topeka

The workshops are free, but registration is required. Click here to download a flyer with registration information.

If you need inspiration, here’s a short film about Stafford County Historical & Genealogical Society’s Gray Studios glass plate negatives project. The photo preservation project was supported by a Heritage grant.
