2015 California Documentary Project Informational Grant Workshops and Webinar

California Humanities will hold informational grant workshops on how to apply for the 2015 California Documentary Project (CDP) grant in San Diego, Los Angeles, and San Francisco starting September 3. Applicants who are unable to attend a workshop in person can register to participate in an online informational webinar. Please be sure to review the CDP grant guidelines in advance at and bring your questions with you.

The California Documentary Project (CDP) is a competitive grant program of California Humanities that supports documentary film, radio, and new media productions that enhance our understanding of California and its cultures, peoples, and histories.  Projects should use the humanities to provide context, depth, and perspective and be suitable for California and national audiences through broadcast and/or distribution. CDP grants support documentary projects at the research and development and production stages with grant amounts ranging from $10,000 to $50,000. California residency is not a requirement for eligibility.
