Getty Trust Offers Campus Heritage Grants
Deadline: April 10, 2004

A program of the J. Paul Getty Trust (<a href=’"></a>), Campus Heritage Grants are designed to assist colleges and universities in the U.S. to manage and preserve the integrity of their significant historic buildings, sites, and landscapes.

Eligible projects are those that focus on campus-wide preservation initiatives. Grants are available for the following: the survey of historic resources on campuses to create a comprehensive inventory and to prepare nominations for historic designation for buildings, districts, and landscapes; the creation of a preservation master plan for a campus or to augment an existing master plan with a historic preservation component; and the preparation of detailed conservation analyses and working specifications, including documentation for a group of historic buildings or landscapes, or the preparation of historic structure or landscape reports.

The majority of grants will be made for planning activities. Grants for implementation may be available on a limited basis for projects where thorough planning and analysis have already taken place and a complete program of work has already been determined.

The first step in applying for a Campus Heritage Grant is to submit a preliminary letter of inquiry to determine eligibility. Organizations interested in submitting an application should submit preliminary letters at least two months prior to the April 10 deadline.

For complete program information and application procedures, see the Getty Web site.
