Utah Museum Association Confererence Grants
Scholarship grants to attend the Utah Museums Association Conference are awarded to small museums for staff and volunteers.
Museum Interpretation Initiative
This grant and educational program aids Utah's museums in telling their story and strengthening their interpretive programs. In the context of museum work, to interpret an artifact means to tell a story through labels, brochures, docent tours, public programming, and other means. Interpretation workshops that cover methods of gathering information about museum objects, interpretive exhibits, and interpretive tours by docents and volunteers are being offered throughout the state. This is a partnership of the Office of Museum Services, the Utah Humanities Council and the Utah Museums Association.
