The Juneau History Grant

Applications Due Annually on April 3rd or October 1st

Do you have a good idea for preserving or sharing Juneau's history or culture? Are you a teacher looking for an authentic history project for your students? Do you have an interest in a specific aspect of our local history? If you answered yes to any of these questions, consider applying for a Juneau History Grant. The Juneau History Grant supports and encourages research, learning, dissemination, recording, and archiving of all types of information pertaining to the human history of Juneau and Douglas, and it is open to organizations, groups, or individuals of all ages.

The Juneau History Grant is administered by the City Museum with funding from the Friends of the Juneau-Douglas City Museum and the Juneau Community Foundation. Projects are typically funded at the $500-$1500 level; however, the Committee will consider all worthy projects within its ability to subsidize. Examples of projects include: live performances, public presentations, recordings (audio or video), publications, community signage or memorials, or any other project that produces a tangible product that can be shared with the public.

The next deadline to apply for a Juneau History Grant is April 3rd, 2023; however, deadlines occur biannually, so if you would like more time to plan your project, you can aim to complete your application by October 1st, 2023 instead.
