Miller History Fund

The Thomas V. “Mike” Miller Jr. History Fund provides support for projects at museums, historical societies, libraries, and other repositories throughout the state of Maryland. The goal is to build the long-term resiliency and efficacy of Maryland’s historical collections stewards. The Miller History Fund is made possible by an annually recurring allocation from the state’s Preservation of Cultural Arts Fund. This fund was proposed by late Senate President Emeritus Thomas V. “Mike” Miller in the 2018 legislative session and enacted into law. The Maryland Center for History and Culture named the fund—formerly known as the Pathways Grant Program—in Senator Miller’s honor in 2021.

The Maryland Center for History and Culture administers this grants program as an extension of our mission to educate people of all ages about the rich history and culture of Maryland and the nation.
