This category funds the cost of publishing books, brochures, pamphlets and other printed documents that document Alberta's history. The publication must have substantial Alberta heritage content and will be assessed for its research interest and value, quality of composition and potential distribution and audience.
Applicants are required to submit a hard copy of the edited manuscript with the Table of Contents. It is also preferred that photocopies of any illustrations or photographs, and a sample of design/layout of the book are submitted.
Brochures and pamphlets must be interpretive and educational rather than promotional. The text along with design/layout of the brochure/pamphlet must be submitted with the application.
Printers are not eligible to apply. Personal family histories and expenses for researching, writing, marketing or distributing the publication are ineligible.
If the application deadline cannot be met, please contact the Foundation for possible alternative dates.
The maximum grant for this category is $5,000 for books and $3,000 for brochures and pamphlets.
