2017 Bristol Bay Native Place Names Grant Program opportunity

The BBNC Education Foundation in collaboration of BBNC’s Land Department has created the Bristol Bay Native Place Names Grant Program.

Bristol Bay Native Place Names Grants are awards from $1,000 to $5,000 to collect Bristol Bay place names, as well as the stories, oral history and pronunciations of these places, before they disappear forever.  Place Names projects would include efforts to document traditional names of communities, rivers, lakes, mountains, hills, bays, beaches and other physical features. Projects could also include the history and/or significance of those places.  For grant application and guidelines, visit:  2017 Place Names Grant Guidelines and Application
