ANNOUNCEMENT: The Gerald E. and Corinne L. Parsons Fund Award from 
the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress

The committee for the Gerald E. and Corinne L. Parsons Fund for 
Ethnography at the Library of Congress invites applications for 
awards in spring 2011. The committee is composed of the professional 
staff of the American Folklife Center. The deadline for 2011 award 
submissions is March 4.  The amount available for awards in 2011 is 
$3000. Historically, the available amount has often been divided 
among more than one recipient. 

Purpose of Award and Eligibility

The purpose of the Parsons Fund is to make the collections of primary 
ethnographic materials housed anywhere at the Library of Congress 
available to the needs and uses of those in the private sector. 
Awards may be made either to individuals or to organizations in 
support of specific projects.

Scope of Projects

Projects may lead to publication in media of all types, both 
commercial and non-commercial; underwrite new works of art, music, or 
fiction; involve academic research; contribute to the theoretical 
development of archival science; explore practical possibilities for 
processing ethnographic collections in the Archive of Folk Culture or 
elsewhere in the Library of Congress; develop new means of providing 
reference service; support student work; experiment with conservation 
techniques; and support ethnographic field research leading to new 
Library acquisitions.

Application Deadlines and Procedures

Please review all application materials prior to submitting them to 
the Center to ensure that all the following elements are included. 
Incomplete applications will not be considered. In the past, 
successful applicants have consulted with AFC staff members prior to 
submitting their application.

The application consists of:

*   A narrative, 750-1500 words long, describing the proposed project 
and its potential products and audiences
*   A budget and proposed time-frame in which to undertake research 
(typically for periods of one to three weeks)
*   A resume or statement of previous experience
*   Names, addresses, and phone numbers of three referees who can 
attest to the applicant's professional work and qualifications to 
undertake the project
*   Please do not submit photographs, videotapes, CDs, or any physical material

Because of security measures at the Library, US Mail and Federal 
Express may be delayed for over one month and sensitive media such as 
photographs may be damaged or destroyed. Therefore, we strongly 
recommend that applications be submitted as Word- or 
WordPerfect-formatted documents, attached to an email with the 
subject line "[your last name] Parsons 07 application." Address the 
email to the Parsons Fund Committee at: [log in to unmask] You may 
also fax all materials to: (202) 707-2076. For questions, address 
your query to the Chair of the Parsons Fund Committee at the email or 
fax listed above, or call (202) 707-5510.
