The History Trust is excited to announce special funding for the digitisation of South Australian historical collections!
Digitisation Project Grants is an initiative aimed at enabling more collections and stories to be gathered, preserved and shared.
Funding will support a small number of projects that make a significant contribution to the volume, scope or accessibility of South Australian digitised collections.
Applications are invited from communities, groups and individuals that own or manage a significant South Australian historical collection. Collections may be archival, images, objects or a mix of collection types.
Aims of funding
Funds are available for
• New digitisation – purchase of equipment and/or engagement of a digitation officer or commercial service to undertake digitisation of analogue collections
• online projects that make an existing digitised collection widely accessible
• A combination of new digitisation and an online project.
Grants of between $3,000 and $10,000 will be considered for assessment. Smaller amounts may be considered depending on needs and demands. Costs that have already been incurred cannot be funded.
How to apply
Applications are open now and close on Thursday 26 May. Applications are submitted through the SmartyGrants management system: https://history.smartygrants.com.au/DigitisationGrants2022
