The Center for Craft, Creativity & Design is now accepting applications for Craft Research Fund grants.

Since 2005, the CCCD’s Craft Research Fund grant program has advanced and expanded research about craft in the United States. The program supports innovative research on critical issues in craft theory and history, explores the inter-relationship among craft, art, design and contemporary culture, and fosters new cross-disciplinary approaches to scholarship in the craft field.

Proposals are welcome from curators, researchers, independent scholars and graduate students. 
General overhead (indirect administrative expenses) is not eligible for university-based projects. No capital equipment purchases are eligible for support. This grant program is not about the creation of artwork.

Applicants must be able to receive taxable income for the duration of the grant or a charitable or educational organizations as defined under the appropriate provisions of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code, and report this grant as income.
