This past May, The Portal to Texas History announced its most recent call for submissions for the 2023 Rescuing Texas History program. This is the fifteenth year of the program, which has brought to light over 77,000 items from 438 projects. Since the beginning of the program there have been over 17 million uses of materials hosted on The Portal to Texas History that were received in response to past call for submissions.

Each selected project is provided with up to $1,000 of digitization services and the materials come from libraries, archives, museums, historical societies, and other groups (including individuals) that house historical materials.

We are thrilled to announce this year’s awardees!
