BC History Digitization Project Accepting Applications

The B.C. History Digitization Program (BCHDP) is now accepting submissions for project funding. The program, launched by the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre in 2006, provides matching funds to support projects that make unique British Columbia content freely available.

The BCHDP will be accepting applications for 2019 – 2020. Applicants can receive up to $15,000 of matching funds for their projects. Multi-year projects are accepted while each year of a project must still go through the adjudication process.

In 2018, the program awarded more than $170,000 for 18 projects. The wealth and diversity of unique British Columbia content to be digitized is impressive. Since its inception in 2006, the BCHDP has awarded more than $2 million of matching funds for more than 240 projects.

Applications are due by Monday, December 17, 2018. Information about the application process as well as the guidelines and application form are available on the BCHDP website.
