Grant Opportunity - Picturing America

Applications are now being accepted for Picturing America, a project of the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), conducted in cooperation with the American Library Association. Applications may be submitted online through October 31, 2008.

In order to enhance the teaching, study, and understanding of American history and culture, Picturing America brings some of the nation’s greatest works of art into school classrooms and public libraries. Successful applicants will receive a set of forty high-quality reproductions of American masterpieces, a teachers resource book and additional educational resources. Public, private, parochial, and charter schools and home school consortia (K-12), as well as public library systems and school districts, are invited to apply. Past recipients of the Picturing America collection are not eligible for a second award. Awards will be announced and distributed in early 2009.
