The American Folklife Center is now accepting applications for the 2016 Gerald E. and Corinne L. Parsons Fund for Ethnography at the Library of Congress. The purpose of the fund is to increase awareness of the ethnographic collections at the Library of Congress and to make the collections of primary ethnographic materials housed anywhere at the Library available to the needs and uses of those in the private sector. Awards may be made either to individuals or to organizations in support of specific projects.
 
Projects may lead to publication in media of all types, both commercial and non-commercial; underwrite new works of art, music, or fiction; involve academic research; contribute to the theoretical development of archival science; explore practical possibilities for processing ethnographic collections in the AFC archive or elsewhere in the Library of Congress; develop new means of providing reference service; support student work; experiment with conservation techniques; and support ethnographic field research leading to new Library acquisitions.
 
The deadline for applications is March 15, 2016.
 
For more information and application instructions see:  http://www.loc.gov/folklife/grants.html
 
Information about AFC’s Archie Green Fellowship and The Henry Reed Fund Award, which this year share the March 15 deadline, can also be found at this website.
