Common Questions for Culture Preservation Grants

What is a Project Consultant?

Every Culture Preservation Grant must involve at least one Project Consultant. The consultant can advise you on best practices. For example, they can help you select appropriate archival storage supplies, train your staff in conducting oral history interviews, or recommend formats for digitizing material. Consultants should conduct at least one site visit to meet with your team and discuss the best methods for carrying out the work of the project. You might also ask them to conduct hands-on training with staff and volunteers. Consultants are often museum curators, archivists, or professional historians. The best consultants are those that have conducted similar projects, and can advise you on aspects to avoid. The Kansas Historical Society is a good source for consultants. HK staff can help identify a scholar in your region. Contact Murl Riedel, director of grants, at or 785-357-0359 for more information.
