Deadline Extended For NEH / ALA Programming Grant

March 17th, 2010

The
National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) and the ALA Public Programs Office
have extended the deadline for public libraries to apply for a $2,000 grant to
support programs that incorporate the Picturing America collection.  Applications
will be accepted through April 26.  Grant guidelines and instructions are available on the Picturing America website.

 Additionally,
the terms of the grant have been expanded so that all public libraries are
considered eligible to apply.  Successful applicants that have not
received the Picturing America collection will receive the set of posters
featuring reproductions of American artwork in addition to the cash grant. For
a list of images included in the Picturing America collection, see http://www.programminglibrarian.org/picturingamerica/general/images
or visit NEH’s image gallery (http://picturingamerica.neh.gov/about.php).

 To
qualify for the programming grant, propose a program or program series that
features high-quality humanities content and includes use of the Picturing
America collection.

After the grant term ends in February 2011, ALA will select a few of the
strongest, most creative programs that combine the visual arts with humanities
content to showcase at the 2011 ALA Annual Conference in New Orleans.

 Resources
to help start your application, including Let’s Talk About It: Picturing
America reading lists, thematic film lists, tips on bringing authors and
storytellers to your library and One Book One Community support materials can
be found at http://www.programminglibrarian.org/picturingamerica/proposal-resources.
