Odiorne Grant Information

The Maine State Archives has grant funds for “archaeological work within Maine that has a relationship to archival material”. The archaeological/archival connection can be expressed in a variety of ways; there is no “preferred” relationship. Grant activities that have been funded in the past include the following:

  • to conduct archival research for an archaeological field project
  • to properly preserve and organize archaeological research notes, by placing them in archival containers, and creating finding aids to improve accessibility to other researchers
  • to consolidate artifacts, notes, oral histories, etc. as a basis for interpreting a previous archaeological project
While not previously proposed, a project to provide a model for archival management of archaeological records would be considered as well. We will rate proposals based on these guidelines for our reviewers:
  • soundness of the workplan, especially the appropriateness of proposed techniques
  • qualifications of personnel
  • importance of material to be dealt with by this proposal
  • soundness of the budget

March 15 is the application deadline; we expect to make a decision by April 30th. Final reports for previous grant projects from this fund must be received before proposals will be considered. If you have questions about the grant program, contact the Maine State Archives (287-5790) or at david.cheever@maine.gov.
