We’re pround to announce… that we are now accepting applications for subsidized Public Scholars Project (PSP) programs. Each year, we refresh our PSP programming, adding new discussion topics that libraries, community centers, and other nonprofits can bring right to their location for a nominal administrative fee. We’ve added some new programs that are sure to spark some interesting conversations throughout New Jersey communities. Nonprofit and government entities are eligible to receive one* subsidized program each year while funding is available. Programs must be hosted between January 1, 2020 to December 31, 2020. Click here to learn more about eligibility or to browse the catalogue.
In addition to the new PSP programs that can be booked for 2020, we’ve added a brand new program category, “Women’s Suffrage and Beyond.” This category focuses on women in public life. It’s rolling out just in time for the statewide NJ Women Vote: The 19th Amendment at 100 initiative. The vision of NJ Women Vote is to “mark the centennial of women’s suffrage while acknowledging its inequities and the challenges New Jersey women of all backgrounds have faced and continue to confront from 1920 to the present day.” Sponsored by the New Jersey Historical Society and the Alice Paul Institute along with numerous other organizations throughout the state, this yearlong effort will commemorate the anniversary with special events and resources. Dozens of organizations have been working on bringing NJ Women Vote to our state for over a year. We’re proud to participate in this statewide effort.
*Organizations booking a program from the “Women’s Suffrage and Beyond” selection qualify for two subsidized PSP programs while funding is available. Contact NJCH to learn more.
