IMLS 21st Century Museum Professionals Grant
Application Deadline is March 15, 2008

The Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) is calling for
grant applications from museums, museum service organizations, and
universities for proposals that will enhance the professional
development of museum staff. The 21st Century Museum Professionals
grants are intended to have an impact upon multiple institutions by
reaching broad groups of museum professionals throughout cities,
counties, states, regions, or the nation.

Funding will support projects involving core management skills such
as planning, leadership, finance, program design, partnership, and
evaluation. Project focus areas may also include collections care
and management, interpretation, marketing and audience development,
visitor services, governance, and other areas of museum operations.
Proposals may also focus on projects that help museums attract and
retain staff, and improve the capacity of museums to address the
rapidly changing demographics in many communities.

Applicants may request from $15,000 - $500,000 for a grant period of
up to three years. The application deadline is March 15, 2008.
Downloadable guidelines and fill-in forms are available on the IMLS
Web site at
