About this Event

Location: Indianapolis, IN

Venue: Indiana Historical Society

Join the Institute of Museum and Library Services for the first-ever regional workshops exploring the 'how tos' of applying for IMLS museum grants. Eligible museums, universities, and related non-profits are encouraged to attend.

This full-day workshop will offer a comprehensive overview of the IMLS grant programs administered by the Office of Museum Services (OMS), special initiatives such as MAP, CAP, Museums for All, and Museums for Digital Learning, and other agency priorities and resources. OMS staff will help prospective applicants walk through the nuts and bolts of putting together a successful IMLS application.

This event has limited capacity and registrations will be accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis. Attendance is limited to two staff members per institution. Workshop participants are responsible for arranging their own travel and lodging. IMLS will not be providing transportation or hotel accommodations. Please also note that IMLS will not be catering the workshops.
