CDP NextGen Grant Applications Now Available! Due March 15

California Humanities is pleased to announce the upcoming March 15, 2021 deadline for the next round of the California Documentary Project NextGen grants. The CDP NextGen grant program supports California’s next generation of documentary storytellers ages 18 and under.

California-based nonprofit organizations and public agencies, including schools and libraries, with track records in youth media programming, may apply for grants up to $15,000. Funding is available to provide training to emerging media makers to create short, insightful nonfiction films and/or podcasts that tell original stories about life in California today.

We are particularly interested in projects that, in addition to providing technical training in film or podcast production, actively support media literacy and use the humanities to provide context and perspective.

Register here for a free informational webinar on how to apply to CDP NextGen on Wednesday, February 10, from 11 am to 12 pm.

For grant guidelines, a list of previously supported projects, or to start a new application, please visit the California Documentary Project grants page.

Applications are due March 15, 2021.

For more information, contact Senior Program Officer John Lightfoot, jlightfoot@calhum.org
