"Calls for 21st Century Museum Professionals Grant Applications"
2008-01-14 until 2008-03-15
Institute of Museum and Library Services
Washington, DC, USA United States of America

The Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) is calling for grant applications from museums, museum service organizations, and universities for proposals that will enhance the professional development of museum staff. The 21st Century Museum Professionals grants are intended to have an impact upon multiple institutions by reaching broad groups of museum professionals throughout cities, counties, states, regions, or the nation.

Funding will support projects involving core management skills such as planning, leadership, finance, program design, partnership, and evaluation. Project focus areas may also include collections care and management, interpretation, marketing and audience development, visitor services, governance, and other areas of museum operations. Proposals may also focus on projects that help museums attract and retain staff, and improve the capacity of museums to address the rapidly changing demographics in many communities.

Applicants may request from $15,000 - $500,000 for a grant period of up to three years. The application deadline is March 15, 2008. Downloadable guidelines and fill-in forms are available on the IMLS Web site at http://www.imls.gov/applicants/grants/21centuryMuseums.shtm. For descriptions of FY 2007 projects, see http://www.imls.gov/results.asp?year=12&program=1064&description=on&sort=year.
