The Juneau History Grant

The Juneau History Grant Funding will be Available in 2020

The mission of the Juneau History Grant (JHG) is to support and encourage research, learning, dissemination, recording and archiving of all types of information pertaining to the human history of the City and Borough of Juneau.

Each year students, teachers, organizations and individuals of all ages are encouraged to apply for funding to assist them in the completion of a project which will further the community’s knowledge of Juneau history. Examples of projects include: live performances, public presentations, recordings or videotapes, publications or digital files.

JHG funds are made possible by an endowment from the Juneau Centennial Committee. The grant is administered by the Museum and an advisory committee comprised of local community members with particular interest and/or expertise in Juneau history projects and research. The committee will read and judge proposed projects, on a quarterly basis, based on the criteria listed in the JHG Application Instructions.

Juneau History Grant and the Marie Darlin Prize are collaborative programs of the Juneau-Douglas City Museum, The Friends of the Juneau-Douglas City Museum, and the Juneau Community Foundation.
