We are currently seeking expressions of interest for the opportunity below:


Local History Grants Program 21 2022-2023 - Panel Member EOI

PROV is currently recruiting panel members to independently assess LHGP applications for Rd 21. 

The Local History Grants Program (LHGP) encourages and fosters community activities that preserve, record and share the local, social and community history of Victoria and Victorians. Small grants of up to $15,000 are made for the preservation and sharing of Victorian history by a variety of local community based organisations interested in telling the stories from their own communities, preserving their collections and increasing opportunities for the public to engage with the past.

As a LHGP independent panel member you will assess applications remotely submitted via an online portal and work with other panel members to shortlist the projects you judge to be the most worthy of funding. Please be aware that this is not a paid position and this role does not require you to travel to Melbourne as meetings can be held online to accommodate people living in regional and rural Victoria who may not wish to travel. 

If you are based in Victoria and have experience working in the fields of history, cultural heritage, social history, archives, collection management, curatorship and academia (and any other related areas) we would love to hear from you. Please contact the grants team before 30 September and we will get in touch to discuss the requirements of the program

We embrace diversity and welcome applications from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, members of the LGBTI community, people of all cultural and linguistic backgrounds and people with a disability.
