WHAT IS THE JUNEAU HISTORY GRANT?

The mission of the Juneau History Grant (JHG) is to support and encourage research, learning, dissemination, recording and archiving of all types of information pertaining to the human history of the City and Borough of Juneau. Funds for the JHG are managed though the Juneau Community Foundation and are administered by the City Museum and an advisory committee comprised of local community members with particular interest and/or expertise in Juneau history projects and research. The Juneau History Grant committee will read and judge proposed projects based on the criteria listed in the JHG application instructions JHG projects are typically funded at the $400-$1200 level; however the committee will consider all worthy projects within its ability to subsidize. The Juneau History Grant and the Marie Darlin Prize are collaborative programs of the Juneau-Douglas City Museum, The Friends of the Juneau-Douglas City Museum, and the Juneau Community Foundation. The annual due date for applications is October 1st.
