The International Sports Heritage Association (ISHA) is pleased to announce the availability of five different grants totaling up to $5,000 that are available to members. The grants are supported through the ISHA Founder’s Fund.
The ISHA board of directors approved two conference travel grants available to members in good standing. The first is worth up to $1,000 and the other is worth up to $2,000, but is specifically earmarked for a member based outside of North America. Two other grants are available to cover the costs of conference registration only.
The annual ISHA Conference will be held from Sept. 26-28, 2018, in Santa Clara, California, and will be hosted by the 49ers Museum at Levi’s Stadium.
Grant winners are reimbursed after submitting receipts and a 250-word synopsis of their conference experience. They also may be asked to speak at the conference about how the grant was helpful.
Additionally, ISHA is once again offering a Special Project Grant of up to $2,000 available to members. This grant may be used for projects that increase collection capacity, public access, awareness and interpretation, as well as improve documentation and preservation.
The deadline to submit a grant application is June 30. Additional requirements can be found on the applications.
The Founder’s Fund raises money to support ISHA grants through initiatives like the silent auction, reverse raffle and individual or corporate donations.
Applications can be found on the ISHA Website at sportsheritage.test/isha-grants/. They must be received by June 30, 2018, to be considered. Completed applications should be emailed to [email protected].
