Grants of up to $3,500 to Kansas nonprofit organizations for projects that preserve historical and cultural resources. Funding is intended for activities such as research, digitization, oral histories, collections care, transcription, language preservation, and training. Projects must utilize a humanities scholar as a project consultant. The best proposals focus on a single story or collection of material.
Culture Preservation Grants support projects that preserve and create access to historical or cultural resources that document stories of life in Kansas.
Goals of the Culture Preservation grants:
Of special interest are projects that pivot existing collections, archives, and exhibits to online or other formats not reliant on the traditional drop-in visit. The primary purpose of Culture Preservation grants is to enhance public access and preserve local cultural resources.
Eligible projects include, but are not limited to, the following:
Every project must involve at least one scholar to serve as a project consultant. Consultants are often museum curators, archivists, professional historians, library professionals with technical expertise, or independent cultural experts with expertise in a specific subject field.
Additional funds can be requested to assist with increasing access to the project, including support for a sign language interpreter, Spanish language interpreter, audio tours for digital and in-person exhibits, rental of handicap-accessible ramps, etc. For information about eligible expenses, see: https://www.humanitieskansas.org/doccenter/31e805f93a7943078504c770585f2e00#page=3
