Info Sessions for California Documentary Project Grantseekers

Interested in applying for a California Documentary Project grant?

New guidelines and free informational workshops for grantseekers are now available for the California Documentary Project (CDP), a competitive grants program of Cal Humanities that supports documentary film, radio, and new media productions that enhance our understanding of California and its cultures, peoples, and histories. Projects must 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 projects at the research and development, production, and public engagement stages. Award amounts range from $10,000 up to $50,000.
