Science History Institute Receives $40K PHMC Grant

Prestigious award from the Pennsylvania Historical Museum Commission to provide operational support for our museum.

The Science History Institute is pleased to announce that our museum has been awarded a $40,000 support grant from the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission (PHMC), a state agency of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.

The goal of the PHMC’s Cultural and Historical Support Grant program is to strengthen PA’s museum community by supporting the general operations of eligible cultural and historical organizations like ours. These funds have become even more important in light of the unprecedented challenges institutions are facing because of the coronavirus pandemic.

The Institute is one of 39 distinguished organizations in the City of Philadelphia to receive a PHMC grant, with $2 million in awards distributed throught the state of Pennsylvania.
