Requirements and Eligibility

  • Unfortunately, due to changes at the federal level, we are no longer able to fund newspaper projects. We understand this is a huge disappointment and we believe your historical newspapers remain a vital resource for all kinds of historical research. We are compiling a list of other resources that can help instead.
  • Our publicity requirements are now more stringent. You MUST publicize your project, which we encourage you to do at multiple steps along the way - when you first receive notice of your funding award; as your work progresses; and once your project is complete. We will be providing a publicity guide to help you with this.
