The American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress invites applications three competitive awards in 2021 to support ethnographic fieldwork, work with ethnographic collection materials at the Library of Congress, and ethnographic field research and documentation. 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 Blanton Owen Fund Award supports ethnographic field research and documentation in the United States, especially by young scholars and documentarians. Find information about each of these awards and application requirements at the link. The past recipients link on the menu at the top of the web page will also help provide a useful history each of these awards.

All three share the same deadline: 12:00 midnight, March 1, 2021. For more information, visit:
