Spotlight on Archives Grant

Spotlight on Archives Grant

2022 Application Guidelines

The Georgia Archives Month Spotlight on Archives Grant is intended to help archives, museums, or heritage institutions in Georgia promote public awareness of their archives and manuscript collections during Georgia Archives Month in October. This year, there will be one award of $500; award monies are intended to be used by the selected institution to fund an event to be held during Georgia Archives Month in October 2022 and the money can be used for the event's expenses. Our 2022 theme is "Spinning a Yarn: Southern History Through Storytelling."

Thanks to Hollinger Metal Edge, we will also be awarding a second grant worth $250 in supplies!

We know that COVID-19 is impacting institutions and their capabilities in many different ways - we welcome applications for virtual or non-traditional events.
