Established in 1980 by the Juneau Centennial Committee, the Juneau History Grant, now managed by the Juneau-Douglas City Museum provides up to $1,000 each year for projects that research, document, preserve, or improve access to the history of the Juneau area.
Projects may consist of performances, public presentations, a research paper, bibliography, model, booklet, photographs, recordings, etc. Individuals, organizations and school groups interested in Juneau history are encouraged to apply. Proposals on all Juneau area history topics are welcome.
"The Juneau History Grant brings important Juneau history into the greater community," said Museum Director Jane Lindsey. "Grant awards for the Juneau Douglas Little Theatre, Preservation Project, and the Last Chance Mining Museum Guide by Mary Lou King, Gary Gillette and Renee Hughes, are examples of projects the grant has been able to assist."
