Library funding to commemorate U.S. entry into World War I

By Donna DiMichele | August 18, 2016

Library of America has been awarded a $550,000 grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities in partial support of World War I and America, a major initiative involving public programs in all fifty states, a traveling exhibition, a multimedia website, and the publication of an unprecedented anthology of writings by Americans who experienced World War I.

Beginning Fall 2016, stipends of $1200–$1800 are available to all public, academic, and community college libraries, museums and historical societies, and nonprofit community organizations for public programming exploring the First World War and its resonances today. Presented by Library of America with support from the NEH, World War I and America is a two-year initiative that aims to bring veterans and their families together with the general public to explore the continuing relevance of the war by reading, discussing, and sharing insights into the writings of Americans who experienced it firsthand.

Stipends can be used for program and educational materials related directly to this project. This can include honoraria, refreshment fees, publicity costs, and other related expenses. The programming stipend may be used to provide honoraria to scholars working on your program.

Application deadline: January 13, 2017   Notification: February 13, 2017
