$150K Fellowships Up For Grabs

The Nathan Cummings Foundation in New York City is accepting applications for the fifth cycle of its fellowship program. Applications are open through December 14 to anyone in the United States.

The foundation awards three people up to $150,000 and 18 months to complete a project. The focus of the project should be climate crisis or growing inequality.

NCF is seeking “bold ideas” from applicants who “represent the heart of our mission to create a more just, vibrant, sustainable and democratic society,” according to an announcement of the program.

The 2017 fellows are Francisca Porchas Coronado, who is building healing, resilience and restoration for immigrant communities through Healing in Resistance; Anna Claussen, who is engaging rural communities on climate change through national Voices for Rural Resiliency; and Jasiri X, who is training artists to become advocates for social justice through the 1Hood Artivist Academy.   For more on the process, go to https://bit.ly/2pW3irz
