Library of Congress Teaching with Primary Sources Grants

Deadline: May 28, 2021

The Library of Congress is accepting applications from organizations that aim to incorporate Library of Congress resources into educational programs and materials for learners representing diverse professions and communities. The Teaching with Primary Sources grants support the Library’s mission to engage, inspire and inform Congress and the American people with a universal and enduring source of knowledge and creativity.

Eligible grantees include: institutions of higher education, colleges, universities, professional associations, library systems, cultural institutions; educational organizations such as K-12 schools, after-school programs, literacy organizations, centers, clubs, associations of home-schooling parents, honor societies; and other professional, civic, regional, state and community groups.

Projects that receive funding may focus on diverse content areas (such as STEM, literacy, social studies, public health and journalism) or populations (such as English language learners, pre-service or in-service teachers, incarcerated youth and members of civic organizations). Applicants can propose using the Library’s online collections in one or more of the following approaches:
  • Deliver educational programming to various categories of learners.
  • Create and distribute primary source-based educational materials or tools for teaching specific content.
  • Convene meetings of similar organizations to devise strategies for furthering common learning and teaching goals with Library of Congress materials.
  • Conduct research with significant practitioner involvement that investigates the impact of incorporating Library of Congress resources into educational initiatives.
Grants will range from $35,000 to $100,000 for a 12-month period, with the possibility of up to two 
years of additional funding subject to availability of funds and satisfactory performance under the current award. The grant period for initial awards is Oct. 1, 2021 to Sept. 30, 2022.
