The Recovering Voices 2019 Community Research Program Call for Proposals closes in 1 week! The deadline for application submissions is September 15, 2018. Since this date falls on a Saturday, applications will continue to be accepted through the end of that weekend (11:59am, Sept 16, 2018).
This Call for Proposals will support multiple research projects to the Smithsonian collections and archives between January 1, 2019 and December 31, 2019.
The purpose of the Community Research Program is to support indigenous communities in their efforts to save, document, and enliven their languages, cultures, and knowledge systems. The Program supports groups of community scholars from around the world to come to the Smithsonian to examine specific objects, specimens, and documents related to their heritage and to engage in a dialogue with Smithsonian collections and archives staff in order to recover and revitalize their language and knowledge.
