From the American Folklife Center:

The American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress (AFC) is pleased to announce the recipients of the Gerald E. and Corinne L. Parsons Fund and the Blanton Owen Fund for 2013.

Awards from the Parsons Fund, which was established to make the collections of unique ethnographic materials housed at the Library of Congress available to the needs and uses of researchers, go to Maurice Mengel of Syracuse University, Alexandro Hernandez of the University of California, Los Angles, and Michael Largey of Michigan State University.

Blanton Owen Fund Awards, which were established in 1999 in memory of folklorist Blanton Owen to support ethnographic field research and documentation in the United States, with special emphasis on supporting the work of younger scholars, were awarded to Eric César Morales from Bloomington, Indiana, and Susan Taffe Reed from Chapel Hill, North Carolina.
