The Center for Craft Archive Fellowship will foster archival research on underrepresented and non-dominant craft histories in the United States, such as feminist, intersectional, queer, Black, Indigenous, Latinx, Asian American and Pacific Islander, and other communities. The fellowship will support a range of scholars, including independent and artist researchers, from emerging to established experience levels.

Six Center for Craft Archive Fellows will receive a $5,000 grant to conduct research in an archive of their choosing. Fellows may engage in both conventional and innovative approaches to archival research. In order to make the research accessible to a wide audience, fellows will participate in a joint virtual program presented by the Center for Craft and the American Craft Council and have the opportunity to publish in a Special Issue on Hyperallergic in Summer 2023.

An information session will be held for prospective applicants on May 31, 3–4pm ET (virtual). The session is free, but registration is required here.

Application Deadline: June 27, 2022
