BLACK STUDIES PUBLIC EVENTS CURATORSHIP GRANTS
FOR FACULTY AND GRADUATE STUDENTS

CLOSED FOR 2017

The UC Consortium for Black Studies in California invites applications for public events curatorship grants for ladder-rank faculty and graduate students at any campus in the University of California system. These grants are intended to fund a public event (lectures, readings, symposia or conferences, performances, film screenings, and other programming) proposed and planned by faculty or graduate students for 2017. These events should pertain in a strong and identifiable way to Black history, culture, or life, and special priority will be given to collaborative or cross-campus projects.

While grant amounts will vary, we anticipate that the average amount per grant will be in the $2,000-$5,000 range based on availability of funding. These grants may be used in conjunction with funds from other sources.

Applications will be accepted on a rolling deadline basis at any point in the year, but will be prioritized on a first-come first-submitted-basis, and assessed according to the availability of funds at the time of submission.

Please confirm submission and direct inquiries to frances@cbsc.ucla.edu.

  1. Coversheet & Budget Template (download for use)
  2. Description of event including date of event (in pdf format; max 500 words)
  3. CV (in pdf format; max 3 pages)
