The American Institute of Physics provides grants of up to $10,000 annually to help process archival and manuscript collections in physics, astronomy, and related fields. The deadline for 2015 is August 15. Since its inception in 1998 the program has helped to fund over 60 processing projects. For guidelines and a list of previous recipients see: http://www.aip.org/history-programs/niels-bohr-library/grants-archives. Grants may be used to convert legacy finding aids to EAD, as well as the other activities included in the guidelines.
We fund three or four grants a year, and to the best of our knowledge the AIP Grants to Archives programs is unique. For more information contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
