In light of current restrictions on travel, HCIP has instituted an Online Learning grant stream to temporarily take the place of the Travel grant. These funds provide assistance for individuals to participate in online courses, workshops, or virtual conferences to gain new skills to support the development of heritage work in Edmonton.
Who Is Eligible
To be eligible, the applicant must be a Canadian citizen or permanent resident over the age of 18 who is actively involved in heritage work in the Edmonton metropolitan region.
The applicant cannot already have been awarded an HCIP Travel Grant during the calendar year and must not have any overdue final reports from previous HCIP grants.
HCIP excludes educational institutions and government owned and/or operated facilities. Individuals employed by these institutions are also ineligible, unless they can demonstrate that the project is outside of their professional role within the organization and will be of value in the broader heritage sector.
Who Is Not Eligible?
Research or education undertaken by an individual employed by a heritage organization on a work-related topic is not eligible.
What Is the Deadline?
Upcoming deadlines for Travel and/or Online Learning Grant applications are TBD.
All grant recipients are required to submit a Final Report to the EHC to share the outcomes of grant funding. Final Reports are due 90 days after project completion or by the date listed in the Letter of Agreement signed by the EHC and the successful applicant organization (whichever comes first). Submit your Final Report using the downloadable forms below.
