CDP NextGen Grants for Youth Media Organizations in Support of Emerging California Media Makers Age 18 and Under

Deadline: Friday, September 14, 2018

Thinking of applying for a CDP NextGen Grant to support emerging California mediamakers age 18 and under? Proposals are due by 5pm on September 14.  If you still have questions you can review the grant guidelines and FAQ, watch a recording of an informational webinar on how to apply, or contact California Humanities staff  directly to discuss your project.

Eligible applicants may request up to $15,000.

Presented in alignment with CA 2020: Youth Perspective and the Future of California, our new statewide initiative that focuses on the lives and experiences of young Californians, CDP NextGen invites applications from California-based nonprofit organizations and public agencies with established track records in youth media programming to provide training and support to emerging mediamakers in the creation of short, insightful nonfiction films and/or podcasts that tell original stories about life in California today.

With an eye toward the next national election and the goal of amplifying youth voices, we want to hear the insights and perspectives of soon-to-be-voting-age Californians on the subjects and issues that both divide and unite us. CDP NextGen will support short documentary films or podcasts that shed light on not only the problems we face, but also on the solutions that youth are proposing and the futures they envision.
