The Albert Lepage Center for History in the Public Interest at Villanova University is pleased to announce a new funding opportunity to support public-facing historical projects related to the theme of “Turning Points” in history.
The Center will fund up to 5 projects that creatively engage with how the study of past turning points have affected the course of history, and how historical study can further public understanding of the present times.
We welcome applications that are original and imaginative in content and form. Proposals can include (but are not limited to) a series of blog posts, a series of podcast conversations, digital and in-person exhibits, an oral history project, an initiative with a local newspaper to write a series of op-eds, a mapping project, a multimedia resource, and other creative ideas. Educators, independent researchers, museum specialists, librarians, archivists, students, and activist are welcome to apply!
Each grantee will receive up to $5,000 depending on the scope, size, and need of the proposal. The deadline for submissions is August 31, 2021, at 11:59 pm (EST).
