The History Channel has begun accepting applications for its annual “Save Our History” grant program. Under the program, museums, historic sites, historical societies, preservation organizations, libraries and archives partner with local school or youth groups to help preserve the history of their communities. The History Channel awards grants of up to $10,000 for individual projects. The grant application and information on how to apply are available at the Save Our History website and are due by June 6, 2008.
Since the program’s founding in 2004, the History Channel has awarded over 1 million dollars to fund 109 student projects across the country, and has distributed free educational resources to over 60,000 teachers reaching approximately 1.5 million students.
