Education grants fund eligible projects that concern historic preservation such as videos, interpretive signage, brochures, books, websites, walking tours, conferences, field schools, curriculum planning and development, and other programs. Creative ideas for projects are always welcome. Education grants go up to $200,000 per applicant, per grant cycle.
