Grant Writing for Digitization and Preservation Projects (Online)

Presented By: LYRASIS

Description: This four-hour class, which will be offered online in two-hour increments for two successive days, focuses on preparing for and writing grants 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 practicing writing those elements. 

Outcomes: The ability to properly choose and prepare a grant proposal including, evaluating appropriate funding sources, project preparation and hands-on practice in preparing a proposal.
