National Leadership Grants support projects that will advance the

This year's National Leadership Grant recipients will generate new
tools, research, models, services, practices, and alliances that will
positively impact both the awarded institution and the nation. These
projects include:


    Project to Develop Solvent-Free Clear Coatings for Metals,
    headed by the Philadelphia Museum of Art, will create a
    solvent-free, clear coating lacquer system to protect outdoor
    sculptures from corrosion and degradation.

    Planning for Northwest-Wide Access to Digitized Primary Sources,
    a planning grant that will support the second stage of the Orbis
    Cascade Alliance's Northwest Digital Archives database, which
    will determine solutions to specific problems that are currently
    impeding the development of sustainable digital programs.

The next deadline for the National Leadership Grants program is
