New - Commemoration Grant Program - CLOSED
Commemoration Grant Program is now closed. Thank you for your submissions.
In recognition of the historical events to be commemorated in 2017, the Nova Scotia Museum is pleased to announce a commemoration grant program.
Two grants of $5000 will be awarded to projects that increase our understanding of historical events to be commemorated in 2017, and contribute to our public interpretation and exhibits about these events.
To be eligible, research projects must be Nova Scotia Museum collections-based and/or increase our knowledge of Nova Scotia’s roll in the event to be commemorated in 2017.
To be considered, the application must include all information and materials specified in the Project Criteria and the Project Submission Format. Only individual researchers are eligible to apply for Nova Scotia Museum Commemoration Grants.
Proposed projects can be in any NSM Curatorial discipline area (archaeology, botany, cultural history, ethnology, industrial history, marine history, geology/palaeontology or zoology), but must clearly demonstrate their link to a 2017 commemorative event. Only events that are strongly tied to the heritage of Nova Scotia will be considered.
Successful proposals will be announced by Thursday, June 30th, 2016.
