The HistoryMakers Creative Study Fellowship Application - Deadline: March 1, 2019
The HistoryMakers – the nation’s largest African American video oral history archive – invites proposals for one of two $5,000 Creative Study Fellowship awards created from funding from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, for the period of April–November 2019. Submission is open to both established and emerging artists (faculty and students) at all stages of their careers. Applicants work must use or be inspired by content from The HistoryMakers Digital Archive.

The HistoryMakers Creative Study Fellowship awards will be awarded to composers, choreographers, performance artists, visual artists, writers or other kinds of artists or humanists working in prose (fiction and creative nonfiction), performance (theatrical productions, documentaries, monologues), visual/conceptual arts (painting, printmaking, sculpture, graphic art, experience-based art), and poetry, to enable recipients to set aside time for writing; provide research, travel, and project support. The fellowship awards are expected to culminate in the realization and presentation of the proposed work, as well as its presentation. Finished products generated by awardees will be featured on The HistoryMakers website, and will compete for inclusion in The HistoryMakers 20th Anniversary Celebration at the Library of Congress (November 6-7, 2020).
