Grant of the Week: Mellon Awards for Community-Based Archives

Elyse Martin | May 31, 2019

Every week, Perspectives Daily showcases a new grant, fellowship, or scholarship of interest to historians which has been posted to our free Calendar. This week we are featuring the Kluge Fellowship. 

The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation is pleased to announce this public call for proposals to community-based archives. We seek proposals from community-based archives in the U.S. and its territories “that represent and serve communities marginalized due to oppression based on race, ethnicity, national origin, gender, class, sexuality, religion, ability, and/or geographic location.” Community-based archives that apply must demonstrate that community members are active participants in their archival processes and make key decisions about what to collect and how.

Instructions for applying, including additional requirements for eligibility such as nonprofit status and the amount of the annual operating budget, are outlined in the CFP. Awards would range from $25,000 to $100,000 for up to two years. The deadline for submissions is July 1, 2019, with application decisions to follow roughly a month later.

Questions? Please email or call 212-500-2475.

End: July 1, 2019
