Join the Library of Congress to learn more about the Connecting Communities Digital Initiative (CCDI) grant opportunity for an Artist in Residence or Scholar in Residence, part of the new "Of the People" initiative at the Library of Congress supported by an institutional grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
The Library of Congress seeks to award a grant for an Artist or Scholar in Residence. The Artist/Scholar in Residence will serve for 2 years, supported for $50,000 in their first year and $100,000 in their second year. Individuals selected will be either artists or scholars whose artistic or scholarly work connects with the intersections of technology and cultural heritage and engages with the legacies of racial division in the United States. Proposed projects will help the Library and the American people imagine new ways of preserving, accessing and sharing the stories of underserved communities, connecting the nation’s past to its future.
During this webinar, Library of Congress staff will discuss the program, describe the application process and address questions about the grant opportunity for individuals. All three webinars will cover the same information.
