Grants for history projects from the Ohio History Fund. The deadline for this cycle’s round of History Fund grant applications is September 7, 2016. So what is the Ohio History Fund and how do I apply? The History Fund hosted two webinars this summer that explained the program and how you can write a strong grant application. Both webinars were recorded and are now available free of charge on the History Fund's website: www.ohiohistory.org/historyfund.
The first webinar, "History Fund Help - Overview of Application" surveys the History Fund's grant guidelines and walks you through the application section by section, focusing on those that our grant reviewers spend the most time evaluating.
The second webinar, "Digitization Nuts and Bolts," shows you how to strengthen your application for a History Fund digitization project and improve its chances of being funded, including addressing details that reviewers look for. Using real-life examples, presenters discuss standards and best practices, the importance of a well-defined project, and how to address long-term access and preservation.
