Smithsonian Institution Recovering Voices 2016 Community Research Grant Applications - Now Open
The 2016 Community Research Grants Call for Proposals is now open. The open period is from July 15, 2015 to September 15, 2015 for proposed research visits to take place in 2016. Multiple grants will be funded through this Call for Proposals.
The purpose of the Community Research Grant program is to support indigenous communities in their efforts to save, document, and enliven their languages, cultures, and knowledge systems. Grants bring groups of community scholars from around the world to the Smithsonian to examine specific objects, specimens, and documents related to their heritage and to engage in a dialogue with Smithsonian staff in order to recover and revitalize their language and knowledge. Interdisciplinary projects are encouraged. Grants can have a budget of up to $10,000.
To apply, submit materials by September 15, 2015.http://recoveringvoices.si.edu/resourcesandgran…/grants.html
