This four-hour class, which will be offered online in two-hour increments, focuses on preparing for and writing grants for digitization and/or preservation projects. The class covers the grant writing process from start to finish. Starting with finding funding opportunities, moving on to writing a proposal, through the grant review process, and finally covers grants administration and promoting grant-funded projects. The class also addresses collaborating on grant projects. General grant writing information can be applied to grant opportunities from a range of different funding agencies, but the focus of examples given in the class is on the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) and the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), since they are major funders for a range of institutions.
