Multiple Regions

Don’t miss the opportunity to learn how to put together an IMLS museum grant, and much more!

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, special initiatives such as the Museum Assessment Program, Collections Assessment for Preservation, Museums for All, Museums for Digital Learning, and other agency opportunities and resources. IMLS staff will help prospective applicants walk through the nuts and bolts of putting together a successful grant application.  

These events have limited capacity, and registration will be on a first come, first served basis. There is no cost to attend, but space is limited to two staff members per institution.
