NEH Challenge Grant Awarded to MKI

We are thrilled to announce that the MKI has been named the recipient of a prestigious NEH Challenge Grant to support the MKI Library Project. The award will go toward an endowment for a librarian/archivist position, the remodeling and renovation of the MKI’s new quarters in the University Club, and the purchase of some new acquisitions. The NEH Challenge Grant provides us with $300,000, which we must match over the next few years on a three-to-one basis. Thanks to the generous support of friends and associates, the Library Project Campaign is already well on its way. We are happy about the recognition this award is bringing to the Institute and are looking forward to meeting the next challenge.
