Richard S. Brownlee Grant
The State Historical Society of Missouri honors a long-time former Executive Director, Dr. Richard S. Brownlee, by making grants available in his name to help Missouri cultural heritage institutions preserve and provide access to local history. Brownlee Grant awards will be made for up to $500 per calendar year. A maximum of $5,000 will be awarded each year.
Brownlee Grants are available in three focus areas:
- Preservation of historical records
Purchase of archival supplies to store or display personal papers, photographs, maps or other materials. Funds may not be used for preservation of federal, state or local governmental documents.
- Education or programming activities
Development of programs or activities to promote learning about local history or training for the preservation of local history records. (Note: Grant funds may not be used to leverage "Show-Me Missouri" speakers bureau grants).
- Missouri Bicentennial Projects

Grants are available to Missouri cultural heritage institutions, with preference to be given to local historical societies.
