The National Historical Publications and Records Commission seeks proposals to publish historical records of national significance.
Projects may focus on the papers of major figures from American life or cover broad historical movements in politics, military, business, social reform, the arts, and other aspects of the national experience. The historical value of the records and their expected usefulness to broad audiences must justify the costs of the project.
Grants are awarded for collecting, describing, preserving, compiling, editing, and publishing documentary source materials. A top priority of the Commission is to support editions that have plans to publish their results as a free online resource. Because of the focus on documentary sources, grants do not support preparation of critical editions of published works unless such works are just a small portion of the larger project.
Funding category deadlines include optional draft deadlines and final deadlines:
Colonial and Early National Period’s draft deadline is May 1st; final is July 7th.
New Republic Through Modern Era’s draft deadline is August 2; final is October 6th.
