The mission of the Juneau History Grant (JHG) is to support and encourage research,
learning, dissemination, recording and archiving of all types of information
pertaining to the human history of the City and Borough of Juneau.
Each year students, teachers, organizations and individuals of all ages are encouraged
to apply for funding to assist them in the completion of a project which will further
the community's knowledge of Juneau history. Examples of projects include: live
performances, public presentations, recordings or videotapes, publications or digital files.
JHG funds are made possible by an endowment from the Juneau Centennial Committee. The
grant is administered by the Museum and an advisory committee comprised of local
community members with particular interest and/or expertise in Juneau history projects
and research. The committee will read and judge proposed projects, on a quarterly basis, based on the criteria
listed in the JHG Application Instructions.
