Fellows & Faculty Fund Expanded to Include Project Grants
BROOKLYN, New York (January 4, 2023) — Cave Canem established the Fellows & Faculty Fund in 2020, originally to help support members of our community during a time of global hardship.
Due to the support of donors like you and the Poetry Foundation, the fund has now been expanded to offer increased resources to Fellows and Faculty, with grants of $5,000 for projects and $500 for individual support.
Individual support grants are awarded for urgent/unexpected expenses or as supplemental support for artistic practice and development.
Project grants will be awarded to support initiatives to be completed in 2023 that further civic and community engagement in poetry and foster poetry education directly impacting Black people in underserved regions of the United States.
As Cave Canem continues its mission to foster community across the diaspora, these grants will serve as a resource for Fellows to nurture their poetic pursuits and help them create (and implement) programs that make access to Black Poetry more equitable.
