Open Tour Grants

During the 2017-2018 academic year, ECDS is partnering with Georgia Humanities (GH) to invite nonprofit organizations to apply for the opportunity to create walking and driving tour mobile apps using Open Tour Builder, a free software platform created by ECDS.

Those selected will receive Georgia Humanities grants of up to $2,000 to develop and promote digital tours that they will create with the technical support of ECDS.

GH is managing the application process. Please visit the Georgia Humanities website for more complete information about application how-to's and rules.
