We anticipate awarding 5-8 project grants, contingent on available funding. The maximum grant amount is $15K. This year we are especially keen to see projects that reflect on, or intervene, in the COVID-19 pandemic and the deepening rifts in inequality affecting vulnerable communities. We welcome projects that explore impacts on women and girls, crosses racial and gender lines—and imagine new futures. Projects are to be completed by the end of 2022 with the capacity of being experienced virtually or following social distance guidelines.
