Through the Save Our History Grant Program
, The History Channel will again award $250,000 in grants of up to $10,000 to fund partnerships between history organizations and schools or youth groups on projects that teach students about their local history and actively engage them in its preservation. History museums, historical societies, preservation organizations, historic sites, libraries, archives, government agencies, and other historical organizations are all eligible to apply.
Applications are due June 1st, 2007.
The key to a Save Our History grant project is a partnership between a history organization, museum, historical society, preservation organization, archive, library, or a government agency and a school district, a coalition of schools, one school, or an organization that provides educational programming for children. The collaboration between these partners provides a unique basis for students to experience the history of their community through hands-on preservation based projects.
