The American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress invites applications for three competitive awards in 2022. Applications for all three are due by March 7, 2022.

The grants are intended to support ethnographic fieldwork; work with ethnographic collection materials at the Library of Congress; and activities directly involving folk artists, such as apprenticeships, recording projects, or performances.

Archie Green Fellowships support new, original, independent field research into the culture and traditions of contemporary American workers and/or occupational groups.

The Gerald E. and Corinne L. Parsons Fund Award is offered to make the collections of primary ethnographic materials housed anywhere at the Library of Congress available for the needs and uses of those in the private sector.

The Henry Reed Fund Award supports activities directly involving folk artists.
