"Grant Writing for Digitization and Preservation" at METRO on Dec. 16

Get a head start on your preparations for the upcoming 2011 “Grant Season”! On Thursday, December 16th, instructor Thomas F. R. Clareson will lead METRO’s “Grant Writing for Digitization and Preservation Projects” workshop featuring updated content and resources for the 2011 grant year. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to get expert help and secure funding for your next project!

Mr. Clareson will go over how to match your project with the appropriate funding agency and preparing to write a proposal. Since most digitization and preservation grants are funded through the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), and the National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC), the session is based upon those particular granting entities’ requirements. Developing proposals for state, local and foundation funding sources will also be addressed. The majority of the day will be spent covering the elements of an effective grant proposal, with practice writing and reviewing those elements. Join us!

“Grant Writing for Digitization and Preservation Projects” will take place on Thursday, December 16, 2010 from 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM at METRO: 57 East 11th Street, 4th Floor, New York, NY 10003.

Registration fees: $150 members; $125 myMETRO; $175 non-members
