Historical Archives Program (HAP)

Funds for Historical Archives Program grants have been expended for 2015, and the foundation is no longer accepting applications for the remainder of the year.  

Individuals interested in applying for funding under the Historical Archives Program in 2016 are asked to submit Preliminary Inquiries starting in December 2015. 

Can I apply for funds to organize my collection now, but not archive it right away?

No. All materials being prepared for archival deposit with HAP funding must be deposited with the intended repository by the project end date, as stipulated in the HAP grant agreement.

I'm not a "senior scholar," but have materials I would like to archive. Can I apply to the HAP?

Unfortunately, no.  The Historical Archives Program has limited resources and must restrict its funding to preserving those research materials that are most at-risk: namely, personal research collections at the end of the researcher's career.
