NEH Challenge Grant to Support The Portal to Texas History Endowment

Endowment to extend the reach of the Portal of Texas History (PTH), which provides free public access to historical resources.

The UNT Libraries respectfully requests a challenge grant of $500,000 towards a two million dollar endowment to support The Portal to Texas History. The Portal provides free public access to historical treasures from over two hundred collaborative partners at museums, libraries, and archives across Texas, and has been used by scholars for academic research as well as by K-12 students and teachers, and lifelong learners. Income derived from the endowment will support new technology development and acquisition, adding collections and content to the Portal, and the creation of lesson plans, a lecture series, fellowships, webinars, and other educational materials.
