National Archives - National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC)
10/07/21 Midnight ET
Grants to USA nonprofit organizations, government agencies, tribes, and IHEs for projects that increase access to records of historical significance. Applicants must ensure that required registrations are completed prior to applying. The purpose of the grant program is to provide access to, and editorial context for, the historical documents and records that tell the American story.
The National Historical Publications and Records Commission seeks proposals to publish documentary editions of historical records. NHPRC especially welcomes projects that focus on broad historical movements in U.S. history, such as law (including the social and cultural history of the law), politics, social reform, business, military, the arts, and other aspects of the national experience, including any aspect of African American, Asian American, Hispanic American, and Native American history. Projects may also center on the papers of major figures from American history.
The Commission is especially interested in projects to commemorate the 250th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence. NHPRC encourages applications that use collections to examine the ideals behind the founding of the United States and the continual interpretation and debate over those ideals over the past 250 years. NHPRC welcomes projects that engage the public, expand civic education, and promote understanding of the nation’s history, democracy, and culture from the founding era to the present day.
Grants are awarded to collaborative teams (including at least two scholar-editors, in addition to one or more archivists, digital scholars, data curators, and/or other support and technical staff, as necessary) for collecting, describing, preserving, compiling, transcribing, annotating, editing, encoding, and publishing documentary source materials online and in print. Eligible documentary edition projects typically focus on original manuscript or typewritten documents, but may also include other formats, such as analog audio and/or born-digital records.
