Latino Initiatives Pool Records, FY 1995-FY 2007
The Smithsonian Latino Center (SLC) provides funding to support cultural, historical and scientific projects at the Smithsonian Institution through the administration of the Latino Initiatives Pool. Each year, different Smithsonian units and museums submit proposals to SLC that promote Latino achievement or contributions. Proposals range from exhibits, collections, educational initiatives and research to community outreach. SLC, acting on the recommendations of an advisory committee, makes decisions on which programs to fund based on a number of different factors including public impact and cultural and historical significance.
This accession consists of records which document the administration of the Latino Initiatives Pool. It covers a time period when SLC was known as the Smithsonian Center for Latino Initiatives (SCLI) and from before the creation of SLC, when the Latino Initiatives Pool was administered by the Office of the Provost and the Office of the Secretary, Counselor to the Secretary for Community Affairs and Special Projects.
