Grants of up to $2,500 to Indiana nonprofit organizations, schools, libraries, churches, and government agencies for history-related activities. Funding is intended to support projects that educate residents about places of historic value in their communities. Proposals must be related to historic properties in Indiana and have an educational purpose.

As its name suggests, the Historic Preservation Education Grant funds programs that educate Indiana citizens about the historic places and properties in their communities—and particularly about the need to preserve and protect them. Programs may come in a variety of formats—workshops, presentations, booklets, brochures, reading/discussion programs, exhibitions, film documentaries, and more—and Indiana Humanities is increasingly interested in supporting digital projects, such as online exhibits, webinars, and podcasts, that expand the program's reach and educate even more people about the value of historic preservation.

All projects must: 

  1. Be related to historic properties in Indiana and have an educational purpose. Note that the grant is not for actual preservation projects. (i.e., "bricks and mortar" work).
  2. Include a preservation professional/expert in implementation and planning. Program personnel must have the necessary qualification and skills to carry out the project. 
  3. Be intended for a public or school audience.
  4. Be presented in a site that is accessible according to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), or sponsors must make a reasonable accommodation. 
  5. Include a plan for execution. Applicants must show they have the capacity to execute the project proposed.
