$100 Million Awarded in Grants for Teaching HistoryNews Archives
A large number of award winners partnered with local history-related institutions. A smaller number partnered with national historical organizations in order to enhance their educational projects. 15 percent of the winning projects, for example, allied with the National Council for History Education. Some 7 percent of the recipients are affiliated with National History Day; the history profession's Organization of American Historians is working with 4 recipients, and the National Association of Scholars, is working with 3 grant award winners.
The"Teaching American History" initiative is a discretionary grant program funded under Title II-C, Subpart 4 of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act. It is strongly supported by Senator Robert Byrd (D-WV), Chairman of the Senate Appropriations Committee.
