American Folklife Center Fellowships for Culture of American Workers, proposal deadline March 11

I'm not sure what "pending funding" means, but this looks like a great opportunity. Details below.


Archie Green Fellowships

The 2011 competition for Archie Green Fellowships is now open, pending funding. 

To honor the memory of Archie Green (1917-2009), the pioneering folklorist who championed the establishment of the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress and was a scholar and advocate for the documentation and analysis of the culture and traditions that arise from and are passed on by American workers, a fellowship program has been established at the American Folklife Center.

The Archie Green Fellowships will support new documentation and research into the culture and traditions of American workers and will create significant digital archival collections (audio recordings, photographs, motion pictures, fieldnotes) that will be preserved in the American Folklife Center archive and made available to researchers and the public.
