Applications for 2018 history grants are now open, the State Historical Society of Missouri announced Friday.
Applications will be accepted through Dec. 15 for projects in three focus areas: historical records preservation, educational or programming activities and observances of Missouri’s bicentennial in 2021.
The State Historical Society will award up to $500 per organization. A maximum of $5,000 will be awarded.
"Five hundred dollars doesn't sound like much, but from my experience, for local organizations that can be the difference between having the supplies they need or not," Gary Kremer, State Historical Society executive director, said in a news release. "It can also mean being able to host a workshop or bring in a special lecturer for programs that otherwise might not be possible."
