Apply for a Grant

The TPS Regional program promotes the widespread, sustained and effective use of primary sources from the Library of Congress in K-12 classrooms by increasing access to the TPS program. Through this effort, hundreds of organizations from all 50 states, and the District of Columbia have enhanced their programming for educators.

School districts, universities, cultural institutions, library systems and other educational organizations may apply for grants of up to $25,000 to incorporate TPS materials and methods into their existing education and professional development programs for pre and in-service teachers, librarians, and other K-12 educators.

Grant recipients may use TPS funding to meet a variety of programmatic needs, including:

  • Delivering online or face-to-face TPS workshops
  • Embedding TPS materials and content into broader professional development programs
  • Revising undergraduate or graduate course syllabi or curricula to include a TPS focus
