Grant of the Week: Turning Points in History Grant

Alana Venable | Aug 6, 2021

Every week, Perspectives Daily showcases a new grant, fellowship, or scholarship that has been posted to our free community calendar. This week we are featuring the Turning Points in History Grant.


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 the broad range of questions, concerns, policies and practices raised by the study of how past turning points have affected the course of history, and how historical study can further public understanding of the present moment.

The Center is particularly interested in funding proposals that adopt a global approach and highlight issues of race, gender, power and structural inequality. We strongly encourage BIPOC and members of minority and underrepresented populations to apply.


Grants in the amount of up to $5000 (depending on scope, size, and need) will be awarded to projects that promote historical research, scholarship, teaching and public dialogue about “Turning Points” in history. As the grant amounts may not be able to support a project in-full, our goal is to provide seed money and/or to help advance a project from conception to execution. The Center is especially committed to supporting work that may require initial funding to get off the ground.
