Description:

Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $750 to USA and Canada teachers, librarians, children's museums and theaters, eligible societies, organizations, and individuals involved with organizations for literary and educational projects. Funding is intended for curriculum development or to design educational experiences related to Sherlock Holmes literature for children and youth. Eligible societies are Sherlockian literary societies in North America.

Goals:

  • Encourage young people to read;
  • Introduce young people to Sherlock Holmes and, in particular, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes stories;
  • Provide monies in the form of grants to support projects introducing young people to Sherlock Holmes;
  • Reach out to both current Holmes fans and non-Sherlockians, encouraging them through financial assistance to develop such projects; and
  • Honor Jan Stauber’s work introducing young people to Sherlock Holmes.

Previous awardees have used Sherlock Holmes to teach English, literature, history, mathematics, deductive reasoning, forensics, and critical thinking to students from elementary through high school.

The grant intends to promote similar creative work by giving financial help to public and private school teachers, organizations, libraries, children’s museums, counselors and others who develop literary curriculum projects and other educational experiences encouraging young people to read, primarily by introducing them to the stories about Sherlock Holmes.
