I just received some exciting news from Mary Kate Kwasnik, Manager of Exhibitions and Public Programs at The Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History. Check out this opportunity for grant funding! –Brett
“Commemorating the 100-year anniversary of America’s entry into the First World War, WWI and America is a two-year public programming initiative of Library of America, the Gilder Lehrman Institute, the NEH, and other partners.
WWI and America provides stipends of $1200-$1800 for public programming exploring WWI and its relevance today. The program brings veterans and the general public together to explore WWI through images and letters of soldiers who experienced the war firsthand.
Applications are open to all public, academic, and community college libraries, museums and historical societies, and nonprofit community organizations. A subset of sites will also be selected to host a traveling panel exhibition.
Applications are due on January 13, 2017. For more information and application instructions, please visit WWIAmerica.org.”
