Grant of the Week: World War I and America Initiative

Sadie Bergen | Jun 30, 2016

Every week, AHA Today showcases a new grant, fellowship, or scholarship of interest to historians which has been posted to our free Calendar. This week we are featuring a funding opportunity from the Library of America for programming to explore World War I and America.Beginning Fall 2016, stipends of $1200–$1800 are available to all public, academic, and community college libraries, museums and historical societies, and nonprofit community organizations for public programming exploring the First World War and its resonances today. Presented by the Library of America with support from the NEH, World War I and America is a two-year initiative that aims to bring veterans and their families together with the general public to explore the continuing relevance of the war by reading, discussing, and sharing insights into the writings of Americans who experienced it firsthand.

Applications are open to all public, academic, and community college libraries, museums and historical societies, and nonprofit community organizations. A smaller group of sites will be selected to host a traveling exhibition produced by the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History.
