The Field Services Program, along with the Wisconsin Council for Local History, is pleased to announce a record-setting year for the affiliate mini-grant program. The society and the Council partner each year to offer awards of up to $700 for projects that support collection care and management. The year we received 71 applications, the highest number to date. See the 2010 award recipient list below.

Congratulations to this year's awardees--it was an extremely competitive review process, as there were so many worthwhile projects and limited funding available. The program will be offered again in 2011. For more information on the mini-grant program, contact Janet Seymour at janet.seymour@wisconsinhistory.org or (715) 836-2250, or contact Rick Berstein at rick.bernstein@wisconsinhistory.org or (608) 264-6583.
