Deadline: November 15, 2010
Posted: September 17, 2010
The California Council for the Humanities has issued a call for applications for the next round of the California Story Fund. The purpose of this ongoing, competitive grant program is to capture and share compelling stories from and about California’s diverse communities.

For this round, applicants are requested to submit proposals for story-based projects that encourage an examination of the meaning of democracy.

To be eligible, applicants must have tax-exempt organizational status or partner with a tax-exempt sponsoring organization in California as a fiscal agent.

Projects for this funding round must explore stories of significance to Californians; address the meaning of democracy; approach the subject matter from a humanities perspective; actively involve at least one humanities advisor in the planning and implementation of the project; provide opportunities for community engagement and involvement in project activities; include public programming elements; and result in work that will be accessible by the public and about which information can be shared through the CCH web site.

Applicants may request up to $10,000 each.

Potential applicants are strongly encouraged to attend an informational Webinar before applying. Webinars will be held this fall; details will be posted on the CCH Web site once they become available.

The online application will be available on October 15, 2010. Visit the CCH Web site for complete program information and examples of previously funded projects.
