The California Council for the Humanities (CCH) invites applications for
the next round of the California Story Fund (CSF), an ongoing, competitive
grant program. The purpose of CSF is to capture genuine and compelling
stories from and about California’s diverse communities, and to ensure that
those stories can be shared widely through public humanities programs and
other appropriate media. Descriptions of previously funded projects can be
viewed at http://www.calhum.org/programs/story_intro.htm.

For this round, applicants are requested to submit proposals for
story-based projects that will encourage examination of the meaning of
democracy. Applicants may request up to $10,000, which must be matched by
at least a 1:1 amount of cash or in-kind contributions from non-federal
sources. Project activities supported with grant funds may commence in
March 2011 and must end by June 1, 2012.

Guidelines are now available at
http://www.calhum.org/guidelines/guidelines_main.htm. Potential
applicants are strongly encouraged to review the guidelines thoroughly and
attend an informational webinar before applying. Webinars will be held
during fall 2010; details will be posted on the CCH website once they
become available. For concerns not addressed in the guidelines or FAQ,
applicants can find contact information for CSF program staff at the end of
the FAQ. Returning applicants should be aware that there are some new
requirements in the guidelines for this round.

The California Council for the Humanities is an independent, non-profit
state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities. The Council
connects Californians to ideas and one another in order to understand our
shared heritage and diverse cultures, inspire civic participation, and
shape our future. For more information on the Council and its programs,
