Sonya Lovine is a Sponsored Research Officer at California State University, Sacramento. She recently received her master’s degree in Public History from Sacramento State. For her thesis project, she wrote Taking Public History for Granted: A Grant-Writing Guide for Public Historians.
With this guidebook, I hope to share some insight into the proposal development process. This guidebook provides a comprehensive, current collection of funding sources geared towards research and project grants in history and public history for grant seekers. It outlines professional organizations for grant writers to consider and provides a listing of the ethical and professional standards to which grant writers must adhere.
